(CNN) — A judge has said no to a motion that would have allowed victims of the Aurora theater shooting to look at sealed court documents.

James Holmes is accused of opening fire July 20 in Aurora during a midnight premiere of the latest Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.” The rampage left 12 people dead and 58 injured.

Victims were seeking access to court documents and 911 calls.

Releasing the information would “jeopardize defendant’s right to a fair trial,” a judge in the case said Tuesday.
