Super American Grand Jury fizzles

Or as the Democratic Underground blog said: “BWAHA – American Grand Jury gets Chief Judge’s boot right up the ass.”

The Court said:

Grand jurors are also to be selected at random from a fair cross section of the district in which they are convened. 18 U.S.C. § 1861. The individuals who have made this presentment were not convened by this Court to sit as a grand jury nor have they been selected at random from a fair cross section of this district.

While it was obvious from the start that the do-it-yourself grand jury movement was going nowhere, it’s nice to hear it from a judge.
