I know that’s what I said.
I suspect they just want to be able to land exclusive interviewers with jurors, which is also gross, but less nefarious than trying to influence the outcome.
Also, the jury will not have been made aware they filed a motion to have their identities disclosed. That motion, like all others, was argued outside the jurors’ presence. You don’t argue mid-trial motions with jurors in the room. Nor are they given copies of motions, let alone motions filed by outside intervenors.
