In an ideal world the commitment to transparency that courts should have would allow for the disclosure of the names of jurors in high profile cases. Responsible journalists could report on the jurors’ experience and the vast majority of the time that experience is positive. But then there is this,
“Jurors of the Day: All 12 of Trump operative Roger Stone’s federal jurors asked their trial judge to continue to protect their anonymity in the face of threats from the president’s supporters.” See more on CNN.
Those jurors request for anonymity is perfectly understandable…..sad…..but understandable.
