July 2005: New York Times reporter Judith Miller was sent to jail on Wednesday for refusing to testify about her conversations regarding outed CIA agent Valerie Plame.

The Times said they had no such documents, and the request was dropped. Time did have access to some of Cooper's notes, however, and eventually handed them over—against Cooper's wishes—last week.
