Lawyers for accused Aurora theater shooter James Holmes are appealing a judge's decision to conduct a second psychiatric evaluation of their client.
Lawyers for James Holmes, the man charged with killing 12 people in an Aurora theater, are asking Justices to require a Fox News reporter to identify her sources for a story about the defendant.
Prosecutors in case of James Holmes, the alleged shooter at an Aurora movie theater in 2012, have requested an additional psychological evaluation, arguing the first is “unfair” and “inadequate.”
In closed door hearings that started Monday, the prosecution will argue that their own experts should be allowed to examine James Holmes.
A reporter for the Fox News Channel faced possible jail time for protecting the identity of news sources who told her sensitive details about the alleged Aurora theater shooter.
