Fox reporter's lawyers seek to keep sources secret
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York's highest court will decide whether state law protects a Fox News reporter from revealing confidential sources from a story about James Holmes, who's accused of killing 12 people in a suburban Denver movie theater last year.
Holmes' lawyers want Jana Winter brought to a Colorado courtroom to name two law officers who told her Holmes had mailed a notebook depicting violence to a psychiatrist. They argue the sources violated a gag order, may have later lied under oath about that and won't be credible as trial witnesses.
Holmes' attorneys argue that New York journalists, as a group, are not immune from being subpoenaed to testify in other states.
The Court of Appeals will hear arguments Tuesday. Its ruling is expected in December.
Flood-damaged Coal Creek Canyon road reopen
WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) — The flood-damaged highway in Coal Creek Canyon northwest of Denver is now open.
Gov. John Hickenlooper was on hand when Colorado Highway 72 formally reopened on Monday.
Damage from the September floods forced the state to close the highway from the junction with Colorado 93 outside Westminster to the junction with Colorado 119 near Nederland.
The floods killed nine people, damaged or destroyed nearly 2,000 homes and washed out hundreds of miles of roads.

Source: MRI shows no new damage on Manning's ankle
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — A person with knowledge of the results says Peyton Manning's MRI showed aggravation of his right ankle that is not expected to keep the Broncos quarterback out of next Sunday's game against Kansas City.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the team hasn't addressed the issue. Interim coach Jack Del Rio meets with the media Monday afternoon.
While Manning was throwing the final pass in a 28-20 win over the Chargers, San Diego lineman Corey Liuget hit the quarterback around the ankles. Manning was noticeably limping as he finished the game.
He had an MRI on Monday morning.
Manning originally hurt both ankles last month.
The Denver Post had first reported the results of the MRI.
