The hearing will begin at 1 p.m. CST in Courtroom 3 of the James R. Browning U.S. Courthouse, 95 7th Street, San Francisco, California. Circuit Judges Marsha Berzon and Jay Bybee, and Senior Circuit Judge J. Clifford Wallace will hear arguments in the matter.
In late September, U.S. District Judge Larry Burns ordered Loughner back to a Missouri facility for treatment to restore his mental competency. Burns also ruled Loughner could be subjected to forced medication, Los Angeles Times reports. On October 4, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals stayed Judge Burns' order. Tuesday's hearing will determine whether Loughner must report the Missouri facility as originally planned.
Public access to the remote viewing locations will be on a first-come-first-served basis. No photographs or recording/transmission of the audio and video displayed at the remote viewing locations will be allowed. Decorum is required.
