Judge Leslie Ghiz put Ray Tensing's retrial on hold Tuesday while she fought to get her media restrictions reinstated and to keep jurors' names secret.

Jury voir dire -- when attorneys and the judge can question prospective jurors in court -- was supposed to begin Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. At 10:10 a.m., Ghiz said in open court that she had released the potential jurors.
