Aurora Theater Shooting

James Holmes info the media wants from CU and isn't getting

While CU is able to refute misinformation in the James Holmes case (like prosecution claims he was banned from campus for threats), the school has otherwise been banned from releasing most other info.

Not all, though. For instance, the school is sharing what media outlets want -- and aren't going to get anytime soon.
