Are you following the Tucson shooting case based around Mr. Loughner? Right now lawyers are fighting with the courts over Jared Loughner continuing to take his medication. Some lawyers say that Loughner off his medication can be a danger to himself while others are arguing that he needs to be off his medication in order to have a fair trial. Here is a clip from an interesting article discussing this topic more:
"In a 73-page filing late Wednesday, Loughner's attorneys said federal prison officials "should be permanently enjoined from forcibly medicating" him. They said it violates Loughner's right to due process on several grounds. Federal prosecutors claim Loughner should remain medicated because he may be a danger to himself and his mental and physical condition has been rapidly deteriorating. Loughner, 22, has pleaded not guilty to 49 charges in the Jan. 8 shooting spree that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords."
