    The first lawsuit related the deadly shootings at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Colorado was filed Tuesday. Torrence Borwn, Jr., who was attended the screening but was not injured, is suing Century 16 Theater, arguing that the cineplex was negligent for having an emergency door that was not alarmed or guarded. (Holmes reportedly propped open the emergency door and returned later with guns.) Brown is also suing Holmes’ doctors for alleged mismanagement of Holmes’ still-unconfirmed medical condition, and Warner Brothers, claiming that The Dark Knight Rises was so irresponsibly violent that it took too long for audience members to realize that the shooting wasn’t a publicity stunt.
