    Jurors names to be released on or after 10/25

    Judge Perry ruled shortly after 5:00PM in favor of media who had brought suit for release of juror's names to the media.

    He said he will release the names on or after October 25, 2011.

    Well, it's good that he is waiting that long. More time for people to cool off.

    I live in Pinellas County (County where the jurors were selected) and as much as I would have loved to be on that jury I AM SO GLAD I WAS NOT PICKED!!!! Of course, then again, maybe not, because by now it would have been a hung jury or we'd still be in there.........

    Here we go with the "the public is crazy" nonsense. NO acts of violence have happened to anyone known to be on the jury or to the defense team or FCA. Why keep perpetrating this fallacy? I don't understand it.

    That gives the jurors some time to move and establish new identities

    well( and this is my opinon only mind you) if they had done their jobs, and not dropped the ball and convicted her on SOMETHING, then no need to protect their identities...i dont wish them harm, but they need a serious scolding...

    I don't think anyone wishes any harm to the jurors, but I think they should have to complete a homework assignment ...

    Read this article (already posted in a couple of other WS forums):

    http://www.law.com/jsp/nlj/PubArticl...n=1&hbxlogin=1

    Then, stand up in front of the media and admit you made a mistake in this case by finding FCA not guilty of the major charges ....

    That I would admire and it might lead to a little forgiveness on everyone's part ...

    I posted the following in another thread but it should go here as well...


    One thing that stood out to me in the article about HHJP not releasing the names until October...

    "Eckstadt said fellow jurors have said they don't want each other talking to the media."

    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/...,5310429.story

    I can't help but wonder why they would feel the need to make this decision or agreement as a group. Why the need to discuss it at all, actually? Why not leave that up to each individual? Then, of course, there were those that apparently broke ranks and talked anyway. Makes me feel very suspicious.

    I completely understand, just wish he would hold off longer for their safety

    I imagine some might do just that. I do fear for their safety

    A wise decision. Hopefully the media will have moved on and not whipping the public into a frenzy again.

    Well that's a very odd statement (BBM). They don't want each other talking to the media? Why? Something to hide?

    Well, we now know they must have discussed the media during deliberations, as what other time could they have done that? They should have been discussing the evidence and deliberating - not what they were going to say to the media.
