Judge:Media Can Talk To Jurors After Lawsuit Filed

(Providence, RI)  --  A Rhode Island Superior Court judge is reversing her ban on members of the media having contact with jurors in a recent murder trial. Judge Netti Vogel said no one was allowed to talk to the jurors following the trial of Jorge DePina of Pawtucket, who was convicted of second-degree murder in connection to the death of his daughter. Vogel filed a new order on Monday after "The Providence Journal" filed a lawsuit, alleging the judge had violated free speech laws.
