Common Law Grand Jury Group Labeled Extremist Movement By ADL

Winston Skinner)  The Anti-Defamation League has identified the Common Law Grand Jury effort as part of an extremist movement.
Brant Frost V, who is chairman of the Coweta County Republican Party, is also the Coweta County point of contact for the National Lib erty Alliance, the organization promoting the CLGJ. Frost said Friday that the net effect of the creation of such grand juries would be a better informed and educated jury pool – not something radical and extreme.
The NLA invited citizens from across Georgia to Ringgold on July 31. The purpose of that meeting, according to a press release from John Darash of the NLA, was “holding an election for the reinstating of the Common Law Grand Jury” in each of Georgia’s 159 counties.
On Aug. 7, Mark Pitcavage, PhD, director of investigative research for the Anti-Defamation League, contacted The Newnan Times-Herald. “The common law grand jury is a tactic of the anti-government extremist ‘sovereign citizen’ movement, intended to achieve much the same effect of the vigilante ‘common law courts’ they tried to establish in the 1990s,” he stated.
An article on the ADL blog stated “members of a grow ing anti-government extremist group” are forming their own grand juries – some of which have “already issued demands against local gov ern ment officials.”
