    I think JP is a little annoyed with the media.

    The names should be released just NOT today IMO.

    Yes, they probably got it wrong. I heard on HLN earlier that it is LA that has a new attorney and that ML was telling the A's that.

    what can you do though? hire bodyguards? Come on there is no solution. You cant keep ther reporters away and you cant have the state pay for security. So we have a mexican standoff. People talk, names will be released. People are gonna out their friends, neighbors and family for money. CNN, FOX, ABC etc will start snooping around and offering people money to talk. I say release the names!

    I have to say no matter what type of case it is, I would never want my name released for any reason what so ever. I know that is not a law yet, but I hope one day it will be. We have no need to know the names of jurors for any type of case, for any type of reason.

    The individual juror can decide if they want to go public.

    I have no links so RUMOR ONLY, but my daughter got a tweet that a cousin of Cindy's in Texas called a radio show and said the sexual abuse allegations against George were true. I've been reading here to see if anyone else heard it. Hope this is OK to post.

    I'm more upset reading this, I realize Number 2 was between a rock and a hard place but I would hang a jury before letting a murderer go free.

    (Media attorney argument) Now that we have a verdict, the balance tips to transparency. US Supreme Court and FLA Supreme Court - oversight of the system. The transparency and accountability in a high profile case is necessary so that the public can accept and understand the verdict. Case law says Jurors are treated just the same as the lawyers, involuntary witnesses and judges. They are subject to the same scrutiny.

    Open access heightens the sense of responsibility. A lot of people don't understand the verdict and this community needs that understanding. An anonymous Jury delegitimizes the verdict. Anonymous juries are extremely rare - gang related or organized crime cases.

    ATTY arguing that making all people involved in trial heightens sense of responsibility for jurors - anonymous juries are extremely rare and frowned upon - but even in some mafia cases the and most high profile those names are released

    RF states that an anonymous jury de-legitimizes the verdict.

    HHJBP: Is there any cooling off period?

    Media lawyer: In some cases yes - a couple of days, maybe a week. We've already had a couple of days here. It is something the court can do to let emotions settle down a little bit.

    its time to push for a national law that has 1 professional juror as the foreman who understands the law and explains it every step of deliberations. there should be a courtroom moniter present at all times and deliberations should be videotaped. also the state should be allowed to appeal if there has been misconduct. in this case there should be ground for appeal based on the jury statement on how they came to their decision. they did not follow instruction and that should be illegal. you cant just toss everything out the window and pick a verdict out of the sky. thats not justice. why do only guilty people get appeals? the fact that GA was on trial is BS. it should be illegal to finger point with NO PROOF in the case of someone else. none of Jose's statements should have been allowed in opening statements and should have been saved for penalty phase. there need to be new laws on evidence being admitted into court. in a circimstancial case the WHOLE picture needs brought in.

    What did he expect? Seriously. This is a high profile case. Hasn't he noticed the media swarming the court house in the last 7 - 8 weeks?
