Aurora Colorado Shooting

Media Seeks End to Gag Order over Aurora Shooting Suspect

Judge ordered university not to answer records requests concerning James Holmes.


The suspect in last month's Colorado theater shooting was expected in court again Thursday as news media planned to ask a judge to unseal documents and weaken a gag order that keeps a university from releasing details about its former student.

The Associated Press and 20 other news organizations want Chief District Judge William Sylvester to make available documents that could provide details about James Holmes and the July 20 attack at a midnight showing of the latest Batman movie that left 12 people dead and 58 injured.
