Judge orders jurors' questionnaires in Ray Tensing murder case redacted and released to media

The hearing in Ray Tensing's murder retrial Monday morning opened with a testy squabble between the judge and an attorney for the Enquirer over the release of jurors' questionnaires.

After two hours of contentious arguments, Judge Megan Shanahan agreed to release the questionnaires with the jurors' names, addresses and other personal, identifying information redacted. Shanahan ordered them released by 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Shanahan said she found that jurors' fears of serious bodily harm, or even death, from perceived threats supersede the media's right to the complete questionnaires. The Enquirer's attorney, Jack Greiner, pressed for release of the complete questionnaires and challenged the credibility of Shanahan's bailiff, Timothy Noel, after Shanahan put Noel on the stand.
