U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Gifford's alleged assailant, Jared Loughner, has been ruled unfit for trial but will be reassessed in four months. U.S. District Court Judge Larry Burns, ruling Wednesday in Tucson that Loughner does not "have a rational understanding of the proceedings" at this time, sent him to a psychiatric facility and ordered a new hearing for Sept. 21 to reassess his fitness to stand trial.
