CHICAGO-(AEAE)-THE U.S SUPREME COURT HAS re-affirmation of the principle that absolute immunity is not available for everything that a prosecutor does, and indeed is applied sparingly when it is not necessary to serve the public interest. A former grand juror, Peter Atherton, alleged in a complaint that he was removed from a grand jury for asking too many questions. Atherton filed suit pro se against assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel Zachem, and others, in 2004. The high court on May 17, 2010 rejected without comment the prosecutor's petition for certiorari, which said the case presents an important issue of prosecutorial immunity. Most immunity cases involve a criminal defendant suing a prosecutor. In this case, a grand juror who was kicked off of a panel is suing a prosecutor.
