Reader: Dr. Lynne Fenton must prove she was no longer James Holmes's psychiatrist
Dr. Lynne Fenton has undergone a trial by media fire in the wake of the Aurora theater shooting, which was allegedly committed by James Holmes, who had been her client. Fenton maintains that their doctor-patient relationship ended the month before the tragedy. One of our readers would like to see proof of that.
Dr. Fenton must provide documenary evidence that she formally terminated her professional relationship with James Holmes, a patient in crisis, On June 11, according to her profession's and Colorado's standards. Otherwise he was still her patient, as he seems to have thought, when the shootings occurred.
