's old defense attorney is seeing double after the "Dark Knight" massacre in Aurora, CO -- TMZ has learned, Jose Baez has been hired by a second victim of the shooting.

41-year-old Marcus Weaver -- whom James Holmes shot twice in the upper shoulder during the tragedy -- tells TMZ, "Over the past 30 days of agony, along with very careful thought and consideration, I have hired Attorney Jose Baez as my legal counsel."

TMZ broke the story ... Baez has already been hired by a woman named Shirley Wygal -- whose 32-year-old daughter was shot and killed by Holmes.

Now, Weaver says, "I felt that the night of the incident, that the security at the theatre was lacking from the time I entered. I want answers, we ALL want answers. And I know Attorney Baez will do what ever he can to help with the fullest extent of the law."

He adds, "Every day, early in the morning or at night, I have a movie in my head of what happened. I wake up every night with nightmares. I don't think it will ever go away."

Weaver finally underwent surgery last week to remove the bullets, which were then taken by police as evidence. It's unclear whether he plans to sue the movie theater.

Absolute classic example of what's wrong with our society today. I guess Marcus expects someone to always take care of him and make decisions on his behalf. Well guess what, for Marcus that person should be Marcus and no one else. So Marcus was worried about security - why did Marcus stay. If Marcus wants to sue someone then he should sue the dumbass that shot him, not the theatre. Feel sorry these people were shot but hope none receive a penny from a lawsuit brought against the theatre.

As horrible it is what these people had to gro through - this makes them look nothing but greedy.

People like him are those who are now crying out loud ""why was there no security guy!!!" - but they would have been the first to whine and complain if ticket prices went UP, because more costs for the theater = higher ticket prices.

Now this is entertainment...i would love to see BOZO the clown go up against high powered , high profiled ATTORNEYS that have been around the block a few times....this idiot went from bikini salesman to finally passing the bar....and gets a murder trial....whoop whoop...anybody that watched the SCAMTHONY trial knows that the jury was not right, there was something fishy with that ...who gives a 6 gun salute minutes before the verdict is read....an attorney that knows the outcome is my guess....having said that....he is playing in the big boy sand box now,,,and this should be fun to watch his morals slip into his back pocket, use his dirty little tactics.... because they will be all over him , he won't get a mouthful out....he'll be shut up....he's just liking his ugly mug in the papers...KARMA ....this is where you sit back and watch it happen.....jmo

If he felt security was lacking from the time he entered the theater, why did he stay?

They should focus on the crazy man who actually did the shooting. What next every business has to have a security team to keep from being sued?

i am pissed, this is an outrage, how could anyone working at that theater know some moron was gonna pull this ****! Short of personally being informed that this tragic soul was going to do what he did i say this lawsuit is frivolous and you are dishonoring all of those whose life were lost by suggesting any thing other than that. As usual the ambulance chaser Bozo is on the case . Shame on all of you, there is a way to handle this but this is not it . I have lost sympathy , and that is a common theme as far as i can see. So you felt unsafe and u went anyway , why not hold you responsible for not notifying someone of your hair brained suspicion, you are a disgrace, both of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Doesn't this creep need a license to practice in another state?

And don't they have attys in CO to take on this case? Why are they hiring an ambulance chaser who doesn't even live in CO?
