After weeks of secrecy surrounding the Colorado theater shooting case, most of the documents that have been filed in court will be released to the public.

Arapahoe County District Court Judge William B. Sylvester has ordered the release, with some exceptions, by 8 a.m. Friday.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys had asked Sylvester to seal the court file to protect the ongoing investigation and suspect James Holmes' right to a fair trial. Holmes faces 152 charges, including 12 murder charges in the July 20 shooting that killed 12 people and injured 58 others.
