Judge Refuses to Seal Bulk of Documents in High Profile Kidnapping Trial
Defendant Argued Online Publicity Required Sealing
Partner Jennifer Mansfield wrote an overview of a high profile kidnapping trial for Media Law Resource Center's February 2018 MediaLawLetter.
According to Ms. Mansfield, this case was unusual. "Although Florida law requires an evidentiary showing before sealing court or public records, it is actually rare for a defense attorney to request such an evidentiary hearing."
