FL – Common Law Grand Jury

Florida statute

2.01 Common law and certain statutes declared in force.—The common and statute laws of England which are of a general and not a local nature, with the exception hereinafter mentioned, down to the 4th day of July, 1776, are declared to be of force in this state; provided, the said statutes and common law be not inconsistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States and the acts of the Legislature of this state.

In other words, since the acts of the legislature of Florida has dealt with the grand jury, and since the Federal rules also provide for the Grand Jury, there is clearly no foundation for a common law grand jury in Florida.
