The jury has left the courtroom. Judge Samour hearing arguments on whether to admit 3 emails from dsherlockb@gmail account. They contain hearsay and statements from CU administrators. The emails mostly deal with scheduling of tours and training, but also euthanasia of animals. Defense considers the euthanasia email inflammatory.
Judge Samour says the jury needs to know what the gunman was like in the year before the shooting and if there was a change in his behavior/attitude.
"It is reasonable to allow documents that predate the spring of 2012... these go to his interactions," Judge Samour says.
"I think [the jurors] need to know what was Mr. Holmes like before the spring of 2012. How did he interact with people... and did those things change at some point?"Judge Samour says about emails.
Apologies - comments will not be updated for about 45 minutes. See you after lunch.
@sydnijmm: The judge has a heavy accent - I thought he was saying "property" for the whole first day!
