Bokulich v. Jury Commission of Greene County

No. 1255, Misc.

Decided March 3, 1969.

394 U.S. 97

Syllabus

Appellants had been arrested on charges of grand larceny. They sought an injunction to prevent the grand jury from considering the larceny charges on the ground that Negroes had been systematically excluded from the grand jury. The District Court found that the grand jury was illegally constituted, but refused to prevent it from considering the criminal charges.

Held: The District Court did not abuse its discretion in refusing to enjoin the grand jury proceedings.

298 F.Supp. 181, affirmed.
