Judge Carlos Samour asked the jurors about the Boston case on Monday, the start of the fourth week in the theater shooting trial.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was sentenced to death Friday in the Boston bombing.
Colorado prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against James Holmes. He pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the July 20, 2012, attack, which killed 12 and injured 70.
Later Monday, Samour denied a defense request to dismiss a juror who said she recognized an investigator who was about to testify. The juror said the investigator was a friend of a relative.
Prosecutors decided against having the investigator testify for now.
