Judge amends juror privacy order  (access required)

But stands firm on second order barring juror interviews on courthouse property

A senior Superior Court judge in Wake County has reversed himself on a juror privacy order that sealed the personal information of everyone in a jury pool, but refused to budge on another order that restricted jurors’ ability to discuss a high-profile case outside court. Judge Donald W. Stephens agreed to amend the juror privacy order in a recent letter to media lawyer Hugh Stevens Jr. of Stevens, Martin, Vaughn & Tadych in Raleigh. Stevens, who represents Raleigh’s News & Observer, WRAL News and several other media organizations, had sent Stephens a memo in which he raised concerns about the judge’s orders.
