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.

Elephant writes:

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.
