Capital Cities Media, Inc. v Toole
Decided April 23, 1984
466 U.S. 378
Held: The Pennsylvania Supreme Court's judgment -- denying a petition for a writ of prohibition with regard to respondent's orders in a criminal trial prohibiting the publishing of the jurors' names and addresses; the sketching, photographing, televising, and videotaping of the jurors during the proceedings; and the handling of trial exhibits without court permission -- is vacated, and the cause is remanded for clarification of the record, which does not disclose whether the Pennsylvania Supreme Court passed on petitioners' federal constitutional claims or denied their petition on an adequate and independent state ground.
Certiorari granted; vacated and remanded.
