Fox News reporter back in court for subpoena postponement

Aug. 19, 2013 at 4:04 PM

CENTENNIAL, Colo., Aug. 19 (UPI) -- A Fox News reporter was briefly back in court Monday for a subpoena concerning her source for a report on the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting.

Jana Winter was in a courtroom in Centennial about 60 seconds, long enough for the judge to postpone her subpoena until Sept. 30, The Denver Post reported.

Defense attorneys for James Holmes subpoenaed Winter after she reported in July 2012 Holmes had sent his psychiatrist a notebook containing violent drawings and plans for a murderous plot.

His attorneys have not challenged the report but maintain the leak violated a court gag order. Several investigators have testified they did not give the information to Winter, and the defense attorneys have questioned their credibility.
