U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan of the Southern District of New York on Thursday took the unusual step of ordering that the jury in an upcoming civil trial involving former President Donald Trump will be anonymous, citing Trump’s attacks against “courts, judges, various law enforcement officials and other public officials, and even individual jurors in other matters.”

Kaplan raised the idea of an anonymous jury earlier in March, and neither Trump’s attorneys nor plaintiff E. Jean Carroll’s attorneys objected, though news organizations did object. The case involves Carroll’s sexual assault allegations against the former president, claims he has repeatedly denied.
