The Trib just reported that Jane Orie wants to sequester the jury/character witness pool in her case.  Her attorney argues that the jury should be sequestered because someone has been leaking information to the media, such as the fact that Justice Orie Melvin received a target letter from the grand jury. “The aforesaid leak of the alleged target letter to Justice Orie Melvin will be revisited by the media during the upcoming trial,” William Costopoulos wrote.

This argument might make more sense in the context of the actual pleading — has anyone posted it online? But undoubtedly Constopoulos is right that the trial will bring a media firestorm.
