Judge: No Notice Needed For Loughner's Meds

A federal judge has denied a request from lawyers for the suspect in the Tucson shooting rampage that they be given notice before their client is given anti-psychotic drugs.  The defense attorney filed a motion late last week asking to be notified if officials at a federal prison facility in Springfield, Missouri plan to give Jared Lee Loughner the medication.  The judge ruled last week that Loughner is mentally unfit to assist his lawyers or understand the charges he faces.  He was sent to the Springfield facility for treatment on Friday.
