Prosecutor supervising intern

COURT UPHOLDS INDICTMENT BASED ON INTERN’S GRAND JURY PRESENTMENT

The N.J. Law Journal reports:

A state appeals court has approved use of law-student interns to present grand jury indictments so long as prosecutors supervise them and comply with a court rule governing their appearance. In a precedential opinion, in State v. Simon, A-3142-04, the Appellate Division on Tuesday held that a law student who is part of an approved clinical education program and acts under the supervision of the prosecutor “does not subvert the constitutional role of the grand jury as a buffer between citizens and the State by determining in the first instance whether there is a basis to subject an accused to trial.”
