U.S. Supreme Court

Lang v. New Jersey, 209 U.S. 467 (1908)

Lang v. New Jersey

No. 649

Argued April 6, 1908

Decided April 27, 108

209 U.S. 467


It is within the power of the state to divide accused persons into two classes, those who are, and those who may be, accused, and, if there is no discrimination within the classes, a person in one of the classes is not denied the equal protection of the law because he does not have the same right of challenge of a grand juror as persons in the other class.

As construed by the highest court of that state, the statute of New Jersey providing that challenges to grand jurors cannot be made after the juror has been sworn does not deprive a person accused after the grand jury has been impaneled and worn of the equal protection of the law because one accused prior thereto would have the right of challenge.

68 A. 210 affirmed.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
