Attorneys to argue over release of Holmes records
CENTENNIAL, Colo. - A judge will hear arguments today about whether the Colorado theater shooting suspect's university records can be turned over to prosecutors.
At issue are 100 pages of non-medical records relating to accused shooter James Holmes' doctoral studies at the University of Colorado.
Prosecutors want the documents to help them make their case that a notebook Holmes sent to university psychiatrist Lynne Fenton should be allowed into evidence. It reportedly contains descriptions of a violent attack.
Holmes is charged with killing 12 people and wounding 58 others in a July 20 shooting at an Aurora theater.
Defense attorneys say Holmes' school records are subject to student privacy laws. They say the notebook is protected by a doctor-patient relationship.
