MOTION TO INSURE CITIZEN RIGHTS GUARANTEED BY Colorado Revised Statute 16-5-204 (l)
Colorado Revised Statute 16-5-204 (l) states "Any person may approach the prosecuting attorney or the grand jury and request to testify or retestify in an inquiry before a grand jury or to appear before a grand jury." (emphasis added)
Judge Daniel Hale’s 15 September 1998 Court order states, in part:
"3. No person, other than an employee of the State of Colorado or the County of Boulder while acting in the performance of their official government duties, shall otherwise attempt to contact any grand juror or alternate grand juror regarding their service on the Boulder County Grand Jury;"
If we the citizens cannot "contact" grand jurors, then we cannot "approach" grand jurors and request to testify. Therefore, the court order violates CRS 16-5-204 (l) and must be vacated.
