Things are heating up in Detroit. According to the Detroit News here the government is investigating an alleged leaking of "names of grand jury witnesses in a federal investigation of the government's conduct" in a terrorism trial. The government does not appear to be happy with a paralegal who is alleged to have accessed names from a grand jury calendar and then passed them on to a target of the investigation. The problem is that the person who is allegedly the recipient of this information denies having received it from the paralegal. The amazing part of this investigation is that the individuals being looked at include an FBI agent and the AUSA who handled the terrorism trial.
