Reporting with Sarah Ostman

Judge James Zagel said he will hold a hearing on July 23rd to take up the issue of whether to release the names of jurors in the case.

Zagel had denied the request. But the U.S. Seventh Circuit court of Appeals put the issue back before him and said he had to hold a hearing.

One of the issues for Zagel, he said, is that he already promised jurors their identities would remain confidential until after they reached a verdict.
