First Lawsuits Filed over Dark Knight Shootings

Three moviegoers who were shot at the midnight premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises" say in Federal Court that better security could have prevented the massacre.

Denise Traynom, Brandon Axelrod and Joshua Nowlan, three survivors of the July 20 shooting spree at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater, filed the first two complaints on Friday over the event.

Their complaints against Cinemark USA dba Century 16 Aurora do not name "the gunman," but the strategy of the shooting and its aftermath are described in vivid detail.
