Theater victims say lawsuit should be heard

AURORA — Two witnesses to the July mass shooting inside an Aurora movie theater are arguing their lawsuit against the theater owner should not be thrown out.

Chichi Spruel and Derick Spruel say they were with two people when the shootings occurred, killing one and injuring the other. The lawsuit says theater owners knew about previous crimes and failed to take action.

According to KMGH-TV, the company says it could not have foreseen the mass shooting that left 12 people dead and 70 injured last July.

A judge has ordered James Holmes to stand trial on 166 counts related to his allegedly opening fire in the theater with multiple weapons during a midnight premier of “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Holmes is scheduled to enter a plea March 12.
