Federal Judge William Young has released the names and cities or towns of the jurors in the terrorism trial of David Wright of Everett. This was after Young initially ruled that he would release the names only if WBUR agreed to a protective order.

Young wrote that even though "there is no credible threat," he wanted to prevent the jurors' information from being "permanently plastered" on the internet.

The case has influenced Judge Richard Stearns' decision in another Massachusetts case in which WBUR is requesting jurors' information, United States v. Glenn Chin.
