Judge (Originally) Bars Media Coverage of Jury Selection in Manufacturing Marijuana Case in Scott County, Iowa

Although the courtroom was open to the public during jury selection, Latham barred the media from taking notes.

He also barred the media from reporting specific details of the process, such as the type of questions posed to prospective jurors of the number of peremptory strikes used by attorneys.
