|Subject:||Right to Know - Exempt Jurors Identifying Information (former HB 60)|
|In the near future, I will be reintroducing legislation that will amend the Right to Know Law. This legislation will exempt the names and addresses of jurors from access under the Right to Know Law.
Under my proposal, agencies that maintain records regarding jurors would not be permitted to release identifying information regarding jurors to the public. However, an individual juror would not be precluded from releasing such information voluntarily.
Many jurors preside over high profile cases and they have the right to be protected as this is a civic duty and not one that they choose to do.
If you have any questions, please contact Amy firstname.lastname@example.org or call my office 717-783-1918.
