Judge Napolitano Analyzes Latest Ruling in Case of Alleged Colorado Movie Theater Shooter

to carry out the shooting spree, but the defense argues it is protected by doctor-patient privilege. The district attorney decided to give up pursuing the notebook to speed up the pretrial process.
Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News' senior judicial analyst, explained that if Holmes pleads insanity, the notebook would have to be turned over to prosecutors anyway.
