In denying a request for a writ of eertiorari. the panel noted that the defendants had not exhausted all of their rights' locally. The six contend the Linn1 county grand jury that returned indictments against them was1 illegally constituted because it' was continued from January I into July. i Not Asked j In sending the matter back to the district court, Chief Justice C. Edwin Moore noted from the bench that the defendants speci- fically had not asked the district! court to set aside the indict- ments on the grounds that the] grand jury was improperly im- paneled, i Robert C. Nelson, an attor-i ney representing the defend-] ants, replied that the six were! trying to expedite proceedings] and save the taxpayers moneyl by bringing the matter directly] lo the attention of the supreme court.
