美國聯邦最高法院今天(JUNE 2, 2014)拒絕受理,繼Branzburg v. Hayes之後,新一件關於記者特權的案子。

在上訴法院(United States v. Sterling, 724 F.3d 482)時,其爭點有二

(1) Whether journalists have a qualified First Amendment privilege when subpoenaed to reveal the identity of confidential sources in a federal criminal trial; and

(2) whether a federal common law privilege should be recognized under Federal Rule of Evidence 501 to provide protection to journalists who are subpoenaed to reveal the identity of their confidential sources in a federal criminal trial.

然而,法院的答案皆為否定。
