Loughner's lawyers ask judge to reconsider rulingLawyers for Tucson shooting suspect ask judge to reconsider ruling over psychologist's notes
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) ' Attorneys for the suspect in the Tucson shooting that wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords are objecting to prosecutors' receiving a prison psychologist's personal notes on their client.
A federal judge ruled last week that prosecutors can see most of the 62 pages of notes that Dr. Christina Pietz made during Jared Lee Loughner's previous four-month restoration commitment at a Missouri prison.
In a filing Tuesday, Loughner's lawyers asked the court to reconsider its order because "the government is not entitled to these notes it wants only for trial purposes."
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 to focus on her recovery.
