I'm looking for information and resources regarding legal solidarity and court solidarity with an eye towards its practical application, specifically how it has been used so far by Occupy protesters and how it has been used successfully by other groups. [more inside]

What are some judicial tests? I already know about the M'Naughten rules and the Product Test (for mental competence to stand trial), and the Lemon Test and Coercion Test (for whether school-led prayer violates the establishment clause). I love these. What are some other judicial tests? Where can I read about them? [more inside]

Do all misdemeanor cases get to bypass the grand jury? Is there such a thing as a federal misdemeanor? I know FEDERAL capital offenses must go before a grand jury and each STATE handles this differently, ie NY both sides and a judge, no grand jury. But I am confused on this process...help, test tommorrow!!
