The mental state of the accused Aurora movie theater shooter is again coming up as the case moves to trial.

The court is keeping the new debate from the public.

The arguments are over whether defendant James Holmes should undergo a second sanity evaluation, but like the preceding arguments, they haven't been made public.

Monday, the judge ruled that the motions filed by the prosecution will remain a secret.

Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of killing 12 people and injuring dozens during a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Aurora in July 2012.
