Identity Crisis

Court committee considers keeping the names of jurors secret

And last Christmas Eve, the Ohio Supreme Court concluded that the First Amendment "qualified right of access" extends to juror names, addresses and questionnaires, and that the "presumption of openness" may be overcome only in specific cases for narrowly tailored reasons. The case involved a young Akron man charged with murder and rape. (He never was convicted of the crime.)

The commission is expected to report its findings and recommendations to the Arizona Supreme Court later this year.
