Summary San Diego Tribune article on the role of the grand jury in the criminal justice system says the bodies are haphazard and ineffective in their investigations, partly due to a 1978 Supreme Court decision that gave criminal defendants the right to a preliminary hearing even after indictment by a grand jury, June 12, 1986. (Supplement: U.S. Justice Department review of grand jury reform issues.)
