Loughner's lawyers: He doesn't remember the rampage

“Mr. Loughner is unable to communicate rationally with counsel not only about his case, but also about information provided to him by” the prison hospital staff, they say, citing what they call “the pervasive nature of Mr. Loughner’s illness and its severe impact on his rational understanding and ability to communicate.”

Their observations come in a renewed request that they be notified and given a chance to go to court, if necessary, if the hospital seeks to administer drugs.
