Three people wounded in the Colorado theater shootings have filed lawsuits that allege the exit door the gunman used to enter the building should have had an alarm.

Two lawsuits were filed Friday in U.S. District Court on behalf of Denise Traynom, Brandon Axelrod and Joshua Nowlan. Their attorney, former Denver judge Christina Habas, declined to comment.

The lawsuits were filed against Cinemark USA Inc., which plans to refurbish and reconfigure the theater and have it ready to open by the beginning of 2013.

Twenty-four-year-old James Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and wounding 58 others during a special midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises."

Prosecutors allege Holmes left the theater through a back exit, propped the exit door open and re-entered the theater to begin the shooting.
