DENVER, Colo. Lawyers for the man charged in the Colorado theater shooting are disputing the prosecutors' allegation that a representative of the defense team misled victims.
In a court filing Thursday, defense lawyers denied that a victim liaison said anything improper.
Prosecutors had accused the liaison of misleading victims about her role, offering to leak sensitive information to them, and trying to muster opposition to the death penalty.
Defense lawyers didn't address the specific accusations Thursday.
At the center of the dispute is a defense claim that prosecutors improperly discouraged victims from speaking with the defense team.
James Holmes is charged with murder and attempted murder in the July 20, 2012, attack that killed 12 people and injured 70. He pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
