Duquesne Law Review


The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has held that a state legislator has no privilege under federal or state constitutions to demand the quashing of subpoenas duces tecum issued by a federal grand jury regarding legislative documents relevant to allegedly criminal activities, but that a limited federal common law evidentiary privilege may be available to him.
