Judge Won't Unseal Aurora Shooter Docs

Probable cause, subpoenas, arrest warrants, search warrants, and requests for or court orders for production of records to be kept under seal.

A Colorado judge on Monday ordered that the bulk of key documents detailing the case against accused movie theater gunman James Holmes remain sealed, largely rejecting a request by news organizations to lift the so-called gag order.

Arapahoe County District Judge William Sylvester did allow for the release of 34 documents, mostly relating to media motions and procedural issues.

But he ordered that the documents media members most wanted to see—affidavits of probable cause, subpoenas, arrest warrants, search warrants, and requests for or court orders for production of records—all be kept under seal.
