TUCSON, Ariz. - Attorneys for the suspect in the Tucson shooting that wounded then-U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords are objecting to prosecutors receiving a prison psychologist's personal notes on their client.
Jared Lee Loughner's lawyers asked a federal court Monday to withhold from prosecutors 62 pages of notes that Dr. Christina Pietz made during Loughner's previous four-month restoration commitment at a Missouri prison facility.
Mental health experts who have determined Loughner suffers from schizophrenia are trying to make him fit to stand trial.
The 23-year-old Loughner has pleaded not guilty to 49 charges stemming from the January 2011 shooting in Tucson that killed six people and left 13 wounded, including Giffords, who was shot in the head.
Giffords resigned from Congress last month to focus on her recovery.
