Yesterday, a federal judge ruled that he would use anonymous jurors in the criminal trial of former neo-Nazi activist William A. White. White is on trial in federal court for sending a threatening communication to his ex-wife in an attempt to extort money. Previously, in 2011, White was convicted of soliciting violence against a juror in Illinois. The judge stated that in his 41 years on the bench he had "never empaneled an anonymous jury." The judge went on to say that he is "reluctantly going to permit it in this case."
