    The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a last-ditch bid by the lawyers for Colorado movie theater shooting suspect James Holmes to compel FoxNews.com reporter Jana Winter to reveal confidential sources from a story or face jail.

    Winter earlier had won her case before New York's highest court, which in December ruled that -- thanks to New York's strong media shield law -- she would not have to comply with a Colorado subpoena demanding she testify.

    But Holmes' attorneys, refusing to drop the issue despite little indication that Winter's testimony would influence the outcome of the case, later appealed to the Supreme Court.

    The Supreme Court on Tuesday left in place the New York court's decision.
