"In D.C. Circuit, Ex-Grand Juror Fights Federal Prosecutor, Court Official"

From the Blog of LegalTimes:

A former federal prosecutor and a District of Columbia court official want an appeals court to find them immune in a suit that alleges they violated the law in their successful effort to remove a grand juror from service for alleged disruptive behavior.

The grand juror, Washington resident Peter Atherton, contends he was kicked off a D.C. Superior Court grand jury panel for asking too many questions of prosecutors about the elements of cases. He claims other jurors were too hastily moving through cases.
