CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Lawyers involved in the Colorado movie theater shooting are limited in how much they can say outside of the courtroom.

Suspect James Holmes made his first court appearance Monday.

After the hearing, the judge issued a so-called gag order that bars attorneys from publicly commenting on matters including evidence, whether a plea deal is in the works or the results of any examination or test.
