Proof in Trial: Appellate Edition: Holmes v. Winter

A podcast series by Hogan Lovells

Jana Winter was a tenacious reporter used to breaking news. When a mass shooting occurred in a movie theater in Colorado, she jumped on the first plane out. As Jana delved into the story, she uncovered a notebook with clues to the gunman’s past. But when it came time for trial, it was Jana who was thrust into the spotlight and asked to reveal her sources – a move that would ruin her career as a journalist. She turned to a team of appellate lawyers from Hogan Lovells to help her stay out of jail and protect her reputation. This is the story of Holmes v. Winter.
