Andrew Napolitano's Fox News colleague Jana Winter was ordered by a state judge in Colorado to reveal her sources on a story and threatened with incarceration. Winter lives in New York and filed an application to her state's courts asking to block Colorado's request. This should have been a no-brainer demonstration of federalism, but the New York courts denied her application. Napolitano points out the dangers of ignoring states' rights like this.
