Medicating the Tucson Shooter

A divided panel of the Ninth Circuit has upheld the involuntary medication of accused Tucson shooter Jared Loughner.  Trial in that case has been delayed because Loughner is mentally incompetent.  The opinion, concurrence, and dissent run 117 pages.  We may have more to say on this case when we have time to read these opinions.

Update:  Jacques Billeaud has this story for AP.
