Loughner attorney rejects discovery request

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The lawyer of January 8 shooting suspect Jared Loughner says she can't provide discovery information requested by prosecutors until her client is declared competent to stand trial.

Judy Clark says the court's finding that Loughner is incompetent means she can't communicate with him rationally.

Judge Larry Burns ruled last month that Loughner is mentally unfit to assist his lawyers or understand the charges he faces.
