Will be interesting to see this one go to the Supreme Court because its bigger then just a simple "assault" on the press. If reporters cannot make news of leaked classified information without reveling their source that avenue of leaks will quickly dry up. To be honest I am surprised it took this long for a case to get as far as this one has.
On the flip side:
“Risen is the only eyewitness to the crime,” Judge Traxler wrote. “He is inextricably involved in it. Without him, the alleged crime would not have occurred, since he was the recipient of illegally disclosed, classified information.”
I believe this is the real reason it was even appealed in the first place, and it looks like the judges agreed with them. Not taking sides, I think reporters being able to publish classified information they get from a "source" without reprieve is not always a good thing in some cases (obviously concerning undercover CIA agents, war plans etc). In this case I believe its a CIA operative being charged under the espionage act, so its not a simple oh its some guy reporting about PRISIM toss em in the brink.
