WASHINGTON, DC (CNN) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday denied the appeal of a New York Times reporter who refuses to give his anonymous sources.

Despite a subpoena, James Risen has refused to testify in the criminal prosecution of former CIA employee Jeffrey Alexander Sterling.

The government stated it believes Sterling gave classified information used in Risen's book, State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration.

The Justices decided not to intervene in the case. They did not comment further.
