Secrecy is the institutions most valuable tool, they will not give it up easily. Why is the details of this secret anyway? It all just implies that stuff is being hidden, which it probably is

Some rogue blackop perhaps from CIA or some random agency? Hiding that info would be necessary.
Or even perhaps from a foreign intelligence agency? Can't let the public know we could be infiltrated in such a way.

Editorial: Unusual secrecy in Aurora shooting case
Unfortunately, the penchant for secrecy orders in the 18th Judicial District, where this case is proceeding, is nothing new. There seems to be an unusual appetite for silence about cases being prosecuted by the office of District Attorney Carol Chambers.

What was the reason the judge sealed the records? No one knows.

Holmes claimed that the package with the documents contains "confidential, medical information". (Remember, it was sent to a psychiatrist).
It has been said that the package contains actually his killing plan outlined which he sent to the doctor in advance, which would prove beyond any reasonable doubt that he is NOT insane. (Since he planned everything and even wrote it down).
The sealing of the documents is basically a dirty trick so he can pledge insanity, without the compromising proof that he is not.edit on 29-7-2012 by flexy123 because: (no reason given)
In my experience, I have found that television news outlets seem to be more about propaganda than print news. On some level, I think all the news outlets are interested in the truth somewhat, so it is good to use them - after all, it doesn't take too much skill to wipe clean the propaganda and see the facts behind something.
About the court records being sealed, anyone on the jury should have access to all of the details on the case, and should be under orders to not be exposing themselves to outside media regarding the case, they probably aren't even allowed to talk about it outside of jury duty, not even in private.
