Day 9 in the Aurora movie theater shooting trial – People vs. James Eagan Holmes. During the course of the trial, prosecutors will argue that Holmes, the admitted gunman, was sane when he went into the midnight premiere of the Dark Knight Rises in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater and opened fire on the audience, killing 12 and wounding 70. His defense attorneys will try to spare Holmes’ life by arguing that he was insane. 7NEWS and TheDenverChannel.com will have gavel to gavel coverage of the trial starting at 8:15 a.m. (MST) everyday and ending around 5:30 p.m. (MST) Watch new live video on our YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/7NewsDenver/live Additional resources:LIVE VIDEO & BLOG: http://bit.ly/theatertrialTIMELINE of the case: http://bit.ly/theatertimelineJURY PROFILE: http://bit.ly/theaterjury CONTINUING COVERAGE: http://bit.ly/theatercoverage
7NEWSProsecuting Attorney Richard Orman got a little loud and pretty sarcastic while questioning a bomb technician in the theater shooting case.

@sydnijmm Thank you for the link. Wow... tensions are already high and it's only week two. I can't imagine what it's going to be like once they get to each team's expert psychiatrists who disagree, what that cross is going to be like.

Orman is on point now. He's got his picture numbers correct.

by Is There an estimated time...5/8/2015 9:01:51 PM
They only have half an hour. Dismissing at 3:30, juror dentist appointment.
by Kristle5/8/2015 9:01:52 PM
@Kristle: I believe court goes until 4:30 p.m. today.
by anica.padilla5/8/2015 9:02:07 PM
@kristle they said 4:30
by joey5/8/2015 9:03:55 PM
Oh ok. Thanks @anica.
by Kristle5/8/2015 9:03:57 PM
is cumulative legal speak for 'duplicate' or 'exactly like' or something along those lines?
by sydnijmm5/8/2015 9:04:02 PM
I don't want to sound mean or anything but I think Spengler is more suited for real estate law or perhaps tax law. She looks almost annoyed to be here- totally disconnected from the case. Who wouldn't? She's probably not happy that her tax dollars are feeding JH.
by chess5/8/2015 9:04:12 PM
I like Orman a lot except for that he always says "ya" not "you" and he never seems to end things with G it's usually things like "lookin'" and that bothers me. Also he says Colorada haha
by mas5/8/2015 9:04:22 PM
4:30 today and he apologized that is was not more of an early day
by yes, that's what I remember...5/8/2015 9:04:27 PM
I just have one laptop (and some flowers!) Erica Tinsley is running at least 4 screens and Marshall Zelinger is on 2!
by anica.padilla5/8/2015 9:05:45 PM
@mas" he probably isn't from here. I say that stuff a lot
by joey5/8/2015 9:05:59 PM
@sydnijmm yes thats what it means pretty much
by Grace5/8/2015 9:08:20 PM
it just sounds weird in a court room
by mas5/8/2015 9:08:23 PM
I was gone a minute, do we have a link of the Williams looking at JH?
by Suzanne5/8/2015 9:08:26 PM
Orman can get a little prickly but its kinda funny to watch. I give Spengler some credit, I know a few attorneys who would have given equal if not more back! But some of her objections are too much sometimes too lol
by Grace5/8/2015 9:08:31 PM
@Anica Your flowers are lovely and my favorite color! Need a little cheeriness during tough testimony.
by Penguins2195/8/2015 9:08:34 PM
@Suzanne: Sorry, no.
by anica.padilla5/8/2015 9:08:57 PM
so that's dumb then. who cares if it's the same picture? she needs to stop. and i'm not taking it back this time. LOL
by sydnijmm5/8/2015 9:09:14 PM
And back again, yet another two hours later... Does anyone know if JH is supposed to take the stand? I've heard different answers....
by proph5/8/2015 9:17:57 PM
by Madison5/8/2015 9:17:59 PM
@suzanne, my resolution isn't very good but IF it happened, it would be about 35 minutes back.
by sydnijmm5/8/2015 9:18:01 PM
@sydnijmm the cumulative issue as the judge kinda explained goes to whether having photo after photo of something will prejudice the jury. Like if I show you something a thousand times you may hate me or it lol I agree some of the objections are just them trying to cover their ground. But the judge has actually ruled on some of the testimony saying it was cumulative
by Grace5/8/2015 9:18:02 PM
I missed something. Was there eye contact between JH and one of the witnesses?
by Nadine5/8/2015 9:18:09 PM
@Anica thanks any way. I know you have your hands full.
by Suzanne5/8/2015 9:18:10 PM
Just watched this morning's fireworks....I'm loving Ormond!!!!!!!
by Valm465/8/2015 9:18:13 PM
@grace that's what i thought. lol. he answered it way after i asked. but i figured that was the case. she keeps calling everything cumulative. like i said.. she needs to stop.
