It's very likely that if the defense gets what it wants, they will request a mistrial for this misanthrope defendant.

Yeah...we can just forget all of that freedom of the press stuff. In fact, that whole bill of rights thingy, we don't need that either. The messiah will take care of you.(no surprise coming from slewpid)

This woman might just be a journalist after all. Good for her standing up for her rights. Even if it means jail. The judge needs to remember who he works for.

“This is the classic reason to have shield laws,” said Gene Policinski, senior vice president and executive director of the First Amendment Center, based in Washington, D.C.“There must be protection for journalists to be free to report what they know, because that is how the public takes measure independently of how the courts operate.”

Requiring the testimony of a reporter to learn who violated a gag order is rare – and almost never warranted - argued Gregg Leslie, legal defense director for the Arlington, Va.,-based Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.

“In a case like this, you initially understand the judge’s interest in finding out who violated an order, but you don’t do that by making a journalist violate their promises of confidentiality,” said Leslie, who said concerns that leaks violate a defendant’s right to a fair trial are often “overblown, or fade quickly.
