The top panel rejected an appeal by journalist James Risen, who has been summoned to testify in the trial of former Central Intelligence Agency official Jeffrey Sterling. Sterling stands accused of leaking confidential information about a secret Iran operation. The Supreme Court did not comment on its decision, which upholds an order to testify issued to Risen by a federal appeals court.
