Judge Keeps Gag Order in Colorado Shooting Case

The judge overseeing the Colorado theater shooting case has refused to lift a gag order that prevents the University of Colorado from releasing information related to the suspect.

Arapahoe County District Judge William Sylvester also ruled Monday that he would release some court documents in the case of James Holmes, a former Ph.D. student at the university.

Members of the public will have access to a list of documents filed, as well as some court documents filed by attorneys. Some key documents, including the arrest affidavit that outlines law enforcement’s case against Holmes, will remain sealed.

Sylvester says releasing that information would harm the fairness at trial and be contrary to public interest.

Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and wounding 58 others in the shooting rampage.
