TUCSON, Ariz. -- A federal appeals court heard arguments Tuesday from lawyers for the Safeway shooting suspect.

Jared Loughner's defense team said the medication he's receiving to make him competent to stand trial could prevent that trial from being fair.

The Assistant U.S. Attorney told the appeals court Loughner could be a danger to himself if the medication is stopped.

The case was heard in San Francisco but seen from closed circuit televisions at other federal appeals courts including Arizona.

No immediate decison came from the court.
