ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. — The man accused of opening fire at an Aurora movie theater — killing 12 and injuring 58 others — will be back in court Thursday.

Arapahoe County District Court Judge William Sylvester will hear arguments about whether or not the non-medical education records of James Holmes can be turned over to prosecutors.

The prosecutors subpoenaed the 100 pages last week.

Holmes’ defense attorney Tamara Brady hopes to suppress the subpoena, and is asking that no one — not even the judge — should be able to examine the documents.

Prosecutors say they need the documents to gain access to a notebook reportedly containing violent descriptions of the attack.

Holmes’ defense team say the notebook is protected by doctor-patient privilege.
