I understand your sentiment, but I also believe that transparency is important. I've started getting into listening to podcasts lately, and noticed there are a lot of them which cover court cases. This prompted my curiosity on the legality of this practice.

To my knowledge, all of the podcasts I've listened to thus far have been regarding cases that took place in the United States. Perhaps the laws are different there. I should also note that the individuals or groups presenting the information are a third party (not the plaintiff or defendant), and only certain ones are involved peripherally with any ongoing litigation.

As a counterpoint, there have been benefits to publication of case information. In many cases it's resulted in revealed incompetence and complacency within the court system and/or by investigators. This in turn has allowed many wrongful prosecutions / decisions to be reopened and reviewed. I imagine there is a distinct difference in handling of family court matters versus criminal and general civil cases, so maybe that is the key.
