DA pushes to let victims attend theater shooting suspect's trial, even if they might testify

Prosecutors in the Colorado theater shooting case say they have received "a voluminous number" of calls from victims who are worried they won't be able to attend the suspect's trial or hearings.

A judge has yet to rule on prosecutors' request to exempt victims from an order barring people who might testify at James Holmes' trial from being in the courtroom. The judge previously exempted Holmes' parents.

Prosecutors say in court documents filed Wednesday that a gag order has kept them from fully discussing the case with victims, and their first opportunity to hear certain details may be at future hearings.

Holmes' attorneys have said keeping potential witnesses out of courtroom will prevent them from tailoring their testimony to that of other witnesses.

Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges stemming from the theater attack July 20.
