United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Bryant Terrell Valentine, Defendant-appellant, 108 F.3d 340 (9th Cir. 1997)Annotate this Case
Before: ALARCN, CANBY and TASHIMA, Circuit Judges.
We affirm the district court's denial of federal prisoner Bryant Terrell Valentine's motion for disclosure of grand jury transcripts. Valentine has not demonstrated that he has a "particularized need" for the transcripts. See United States v. Sells Engineering, Inc., 463 U.S. 418, 443 (1983). Moreover, any error in the grand jury proceedings was rendered harmless by the petit jury's conviction of Valentine. See United States v. Mechanik, 475 U.S. 66, 73 (1986).
