Participated in an amicus brief (with the Reporters Committee and other media groups) filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in In re Juror Questionnaires in United States v. Stone.  The case involves a motion filed by a social media activist seeking access to the juror questionnaires in the Roger Stone prosecution and the juror identification number of the jury foreperson.  The amicus brief supports the motion for access, arguing that the First Amendment creates a presumptive right of access to voir dire, which includes juror questionnaires; that this includes the right to know which questionnaires correspond to those jurors selected; and that in this case, the juror questionnaires and identification numbers should be disclosed absent specific factual findings showing a compelling interest in keeping them sealed.  [2020]
