Holmes lawyers seek delay of hearing on reporter

DENVER — Attorneys for Colorado theater shooting suspect James Holmes have asked a judge to postpone a hearing on their attempt to force a Fox News Channel reporter to testify about her sources.

A hearing had been scheduled for Feb. 4 on the attorneys’ subpoena for reporter Jana Winter. In a motion made public Monday, Holmes’ lawyers say they haven’t had time to prepare and asked to rescheduled the hearing for April.

Winter wrote a story shortly after the July 20 shootings citing unnamed law enforcement sources in describing the contents of a notebook Holmes sent to a psychiatrist. The defense contends the leak violated a gag order.

Fox officials didn’t immediately return a phone call Monday.

Holmes is charged with killing 12 people and injuring 70. He hasn’t entered a plea.
