Casey Anthony trial secrets cannot go unchallenged

By far the most popular recent story in the news that’s also about the news is the one involving the British Parliament and Rupert Murdoch. But the second most popular involves “sealed evidence” in the Casey Anthony case, including photographs of Caylee and search warrants for computer files. Unlike the Murdoch’s NewsCorp matter, the Casey Anthony murder trial is a story about the news because of what the media is not doing to find out what’s hidden in those sealed files. The public has a right to know, and the media is supposed to be the people’s advocate for full disclosure.

Information can be kept hidden while a trial is pending in order to protect the rights of the accused. These interests disappear when the trial ends. This is why, after the acquittal, The Patriot Ledger sent a public records request for full access to the sealed evidence – or an explanation for why such evidence would continue to be sealed now that the case is over.
