(FOXNEWSINSIDER) — In the summer of 2012, James Holmes shot and killed 12 people and injured more than 50 others at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. As the nation asked why, FoxNews.com reporter Jana Winter was the first to break the story about a notebook Holmes sent a psychiatrist that detailed his plans for the rampage.

Holmes’ attorneys say Winter must give up her sources regarding the notebook because the leaked information hampers their client’s right to a fair trial. Winter is hoping a judge will uphold New York’s media shield law, which protects journalists from revealing sources. If the judge doesn’t, she’ll have to return to a Colorado court where she faces possible jail time.

Judith Miller joined Harris Faulkner on last night’s Fox Report Weekend to discuss the case. Miller went to jail for 85 days in 2005 for refusing to reveal her sources. Having spoken to Winter about that choice, Miller said the Fox News reporter is ready to go to jail if she has to.
