"Prosecutors in Shooting Abandon Bid for Notebook"

From The New York Times:

CENTENNIAL, Colo. — James E. Holmes, accused of killing 12 people in a Colorado movie theater, appeared in court on Thursday, his shaggy hair now shorn and brown rather than neon orange, as prosecutors, saying they did not want to delay proceedings, abandoned their fight to see a notebook he sent to a university psychiatrist.

. . .

Public defenders for Mr. Holmes have argued that the notebook cannot be made public or shared with prosecutors because it is privileged communication between Mr. Holmes and Dr. Lynne Fenton, a psychiatrist at the University of Colorado Denver, who saw Mr. Holmes briefly in June.
