Va. Beach jurors get names

Virginia Beach Circuit Court judges in the city are no longer automatically sealing jurors’ names in criminal cases, the Virginian-Pilot reports.  Chief Judge Frederick Lowe said  the court’s practice had ended after he and his colleagues read a state advisory committee’s proposed rule, published in October, specifying that sealing jurors’ names should take place “only upon a finding of good cause sufficient to warrant departure from the norm of open proceedings.”
