Notes of Decisions

Prosecutor has authority to sub­poe­na witnesses before grand jury but inquisitorial power to compel testimony resides in grand jury; attorney-witness before grand jury who refused to answer ques­tion on ground of attorney-client privilege could not be compelled to testify by prosecutor’s asking court on behalf of grand jury to order answer to ques­tion.
