A federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C., who is being sued for his alleged role in the removal of a grand juror wants the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse a federal appeals court ruling that went against the government. Lawyers for the prosecutor, Daniel Zachem, an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the District of Columbia, filed a certiorari petition saying the D.C. Circuit ruling is at odds with rulings in the 2nd and 8th circuits that afforded absolute immunity to prosecutors working with grand juries.
