Aurora Theater Shooting

James Holmes case: Fox News reporter must appear in court despite chainsaw argument

Update: The judge in the Aurora theater shooting case has ordered Fox News reporter Jana Winter to appear in court on August 19 so that he may continue her subpoena until September 30. In a submission filed last week, Winter refused to consent to appear on September 30, thereby making it necessary for the judge to hold a hearing on August 19 simply for the purpose of ordering her to come back in September. In an order (on view below), the judge chastises Winter for using her submission to once again argue that her subpoena should be dropped altogether.
