RULE 6. GRAND JURY [Reserved for Reference and Possible Future Use]

Effective Date: 1/1/2001

SOURCES: Joint Procedure Committee Minutes of March 23-25, 1972, page 2; September 16-18, 1971, pages 2-4.

The Committee recommends that no rule be adopted pertaining to grand juries.

The Committee doubts whether any changes in statutory grand jury procedure can be made by Rule in view of Section 8 of the North Dakota Constitution which provides that "the legislature" may change, regulate or abolish the grand jury system.

The 1971 Legislature upon recommendation of this Committee enacted a complete revision of the grand jury statutes (Chapter 29-10.1, N.D.C.C.).
