Lynne Fenton, James Holmes's psychiatrist, sued by wife of Aurora theater shooting victim
|Chantel Blunk in a post-shooting interview.|
The suit also maintains that CU is also liable because "Defendant Fenton was in the employ or employed by The University of Colorado...and was acting within the scope and course of her employment" when she was treating Holmes.
Winning a judgement on this argument has to be considered a long shot. After all, even if Fenton had asked for Holmes to be placed on a 72-hour mental-health hold, he still could have committed the attack on the theater, which took place more than a month after the remarks cited by 7News.
Consider the claim for yourself by reading the entire suit below.
