Analysis of Aurora’s response to theater shooting won’t be made public for now

From The Denver Post: The city of Aurora this week could get a comprehensive outside analysis of how it responded to the Aurora theater shooting, but officials say they won’t make it public for now because that could violate a gag order in the case.

Instead, Aurora City Manager Skip Noe said the city plans to consult with Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler — who initially was opposed to the probe — to decide how best to proceed. Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour, who is presiding over the James Holmes court case, could ultimately decide whether the report by TriData can be open for public review.

“In order to get it released, in our view we have to get permission from the court,” Noe said. “Our intent all along is to try to release this document.”
