Subject: SLS: Grand Jury at Work? (fwd)
Cc: Dale Robertson <habeascorpus@hotmail.com>

If the state grand jury there was
assembled from voter registration
lists, and if the voter registration
form requires the registrant to certify,
under penalty of perjury, that s/he is
a federal citizen, then the law which
convenes grand juries in that state is
unconstitutional.  This would form the
legal basis for a Habeas Corpus petition,
to a court of competent jurisdiction.
For background on this issue, read 
"Juries in Check around the Nation"
in the Supreme Law Library at the URL
below my name.
