PACDL Submits Amicus Brief In re: Fortieth Statewide Investigating Grand Jury

​​PACDL filed an amicus curiae brief in the case of In re: Fortieth Statewide Investigating Grand Jury, (Nos. 75,77-82,84-89,106 WM 2018) on August 2 with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Western District.  The brief stated that the court failed to consider whether the grand jury report falls within statutorily approved purposes. It also specified that a pre-deprivation hearing is necessary to protect the fundamental constitutional rights of the named private individuals accused in the grand jury report and that the constitutional protections of due process and reputation require more than a "preponderance" standard of proof, at least for named individuals who are not public officials.
