    As many as 3,000 failed to report for jury duty in Aurora theater shooting trial

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — As many as 3,000 Arapahoe County residents who were issued jury summonses in the Aurora theater shooting trial failed to report for duty. And it seems unlikely that they will face any significant consequences. While 3,000 might seem like a relatively high number, District Court Judge Carlos Samour said he was pleased by the juror turnout for phase one of the selection process, which is slated to end on Feb. 9. Samour even applauded the citizens of […]

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — A mother with a doctor’s note requesting she be released from jury duty to breastfeed and a man whose illiteracy claim drew a snark remark from Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour were among 132 jurors dismissed from the pool for the Aurora theater shooting trial on Wednesday. Over 1,300 jurors have been dismissed from a pool that saw 9,000 jury summons mailed out, making it one of the largest jury pools in U.S. history. Close to 1,600 […]

    Theater shooting juror with unvaccinated grandchild rips out own hair, dismissed

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — A potential juror in the Aurora theater shooting trial was released from duty Tuesday morning after showing up to court with an allegedly unvaccinated grandchild who she said daycare wouldn’t accept, and then falling to her knees while tearing out chunks of her own hair when the court asked if she could try to find care for the child and return at a later date. Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour said members of his staff […]

    Next Aurora theater shooting jury selection phase to begin early

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — With over 1,000 jurors dismissed, and presumably over 1,300 potential jurors left in the pool after completing questionnaires, the judge presiding over the Aurora theater shooting case ruled on Monday that the current phase in the trial process could end four days sooner than scheduled. The initial jury questionnaire portion of the selection process is now slated to end on Feb. 9. That phase had been scheduled to run until Feb. 13. The next phase of the […]

    Aurora theater shooting judge suggests shortening jury selection

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Seemingly encouraged after almost two weeks of court sessions, Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour proposed cutting the current phase of jury selection in the Aurora theater shooting trial by almost a week. Samour’s encouragement stemmed from the averages he presented before the court Friday morning. The judge indicated the court has seen an average of 130 jurors completing questionnaires in each of the 16 completed sessions, leading to a little more than 2,000 questionnaires completed. […]

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — As the second week of jury selection in the Aurora theater shooting case began to near its end, the defense agreed to release a potential juror who said she was 34 weeks pregnant but did not agree to dismiss the wife of an Aurora police officer. The pregnant woman was part of a group of 126 potential jurors who were released on Thursday. In total, Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler and his team along with defense […]

    Potential Aurora theater juror told, ‘You’re not supposed to be here’

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Wednesday morning’s jury selection session in the Aurora theater shooting trial began with a peculiar back-and-forth between a prospective juror and District Court Judge Carlos Samour. It was ultimately determined that the man went above and beyond the call to jury duty. Why? Because it appeared the Post Office sent him a jury summons that wasn’t meant for him. After a period of deliberation Wednesday morning, the court discovered the man’s jury summons had both a name and […]

    Defense objects to releasing potential Aurora theater juror who is 34 weeks pregnant

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — A family friend of a victim in the Columbine High School tragedy and two individuals with connections to eyewitnesses inside the theater were among the prospective jurors discussed during Tuesday’s jury selection hearings in the Aurora theater shooting trial. One of the more noteworthy objections raised by the defense team representing James Holmes, the admitted gunman in the July 2012 Aurora theater shooting that left 12 dead and 70 injured, was in regard to a pregnant juror.

    Judge won’t dismiss summoned theater shooting juror who may have been drunk in court

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — The number of would-be jurors released from duty in the Aurora theater trial rose to 384 on Monday, accelerating the pace that was set during the first week of the jury selection process. And the courtroom where the proceedings continued remained docile. That total number of dismissed jurors on Monday was 171, which almost equaled the number of jurors dismissed in all of last week, when 213 jurors were sent home. Ultimately the court is working towards […]
