Nxivm judge decides not to release juror names to the media: Here's why - 2019-07-06
Citing concerns for their security, Judge Nicholas Garaufis has opted not to release the names of the jurors in the Nxivm trial. The New York Daily News had filed a request with the court that the names be released, and it was joined by other press organizations, including the New York Times.
But Judge Garaufis turned it down, saying, "Being a juror publicly identified with this case is a far greater burden than being publicly identified with a typical criminal trial. Unsurprisingly, several jurors privately asked the court not to release their names even after the trial concluded."
Jurors, of course, are free to identify themselves or to approach news organizations on their own.
