Judge consolidates Colorado theater shooting lawsuits

Shooting survivors and victims’ relatives claim the Cinemark theater chain failed to implement adequate security measures prior to the July 20 shooting rampage

A federal judge on Monday consolidated seven lawsuits filed against the Cinemark movie theater chain in connection with July’s theater shooting that left 12 people dead and 58 wounded.

On July 20, suspect James Holmes allegedly opened fire on moviegoers attending a midnight showing of the Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises.” Holmes, who was arrested minutes after the shooting, has been charged with more than 100 counts of murder and attempted murder.
