(KSL News) Prosecutors pursuing charges against a Utah adoption agency will no longer talk about the case in public.

A deal restricting lawyers on both sides from making statements that may influence potential jurors is now being considered by U.S. District Judge David Sam.

It was spurred by defense concerns that the prosecution was talking too much in the media about the case against Focus on Children.

The proprietors of that agency are accused of tricking Samoan parents into giving up their children for adoption and then telling the adoptive parents they were abandoned.
