(Reuters) - A Colorado judge ordered a Fox News reporter on Friday to testify in the case of accused theater gunman James Holmes and shed light on her anonymous sources for a story about a notebook connected to Holmes.
Arapahoe County District Judge William Sylvester ordered New York-based journalist Jana Winter to appear in court on February 4 in a ruling centered on information that came to public light after a gag order he imposed early on in the case.
Fox News said it does not comment on pending legal matters.
The judge ordered Winter to testify about a story published online under her byline days after a court-imposed gag order went into effect, with details on the contents of a notebook Holmes sent to University of Colorado psychiatrist Lynne Fenton.
1. I wonder if the story is true. It would be odd for a schizophrenic to make details plans that
weren't utterly looney. I believe a psychiatrist diagnosed him before the murders and before he left the school so this case may reveal that there were some botched opportunities to prevent the massacre, in particular from the school.
