Anthony judge wants juror's names sealed

ORLANDO, FL (WFLX) - The judge in the Casey Anthony trial is urging the Florida legislature to change the public records law to exempt jurors' names in high profile cases from becoming public.

In his proposal, Judge Belvin Perry says that releasing the names of the jurors makes a mockery of the privacy law, especially in high-profile cases.

Some of the jurors in this case have been threatened.

But, not everyone agrees with the proposal. The director of the First Amendment Foundation says people have more faith in the judicial process when it is transparent.

Casey Anthony was acquitted of murdering her 2-year old daughter.
