    Monday hearing clears path for closing argument in trial of James Holmes for movie theater shooting

    ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. - Attorneys met in court Monday to settle debate about instructions for the jurors and clear the path for closing arguments to be presented Tuesday in the Aurora movie theater shooting trial.

    Much of the hearing Monday was about the semantics of the jury instructions and the language that would appear on the verdict forms for the 165 counts in this case.

    Court will convene at approximately 9 a.m. and start with the reading of the long list of instructions that were finalized Monday. After a likely recess, the closing arguments themselves will begin. District Attorney George Brauchler is slated to go first. Both sides will have only two hours total for their closing arguments but, as Recht points out, the DA has indicated that he plans to save about 30 minutes for a rebuttal.

    Judge says attorneys will get chance now to review each other's demonstrative exhibits 10 minutes ago

    Defense confirms they want the judge to inform jury about defendant's right to not testify Prosecution not requesting any changes to instructions or verdict forms Defense requests no additional changes to instructions or forms, but says they 'maintain" all previous objections. Reminder; Jury is not in the room yet. This is a final meeting before a short recess and then the jury will be brought in for their instructions Phil Tenser

    They played the 911 tape - that is so powerful to me. It's the one you can hear the 'boom, boom, boom' of the gun shots. It was said you could hear at least 30! The thoughts of terror of the people when I hear the shots! It's just, I have no words.

    <Running, running, running, huffing and puffing.......sliding up to my chair! Whew! I am here!>

    Good Morning WS Friends!
    :loveyou:

    I predict a verdict Thursday, probably mid-afternoon. I think the jury wants to be thorough, but not so much that they will drag out their decision. There is a chance my opinion will change pending closing arguments; we'll see. Any other opinions?
