FBI leaked secret Grand Jury information. Government found

FBI leaked secret Grand Jury information. Government found no wrong doing but leaked info being used by foreign company to civilly sue small Michigan family business.My dad has fought billion dollar company using Google for 9yrs but there seems little resolution in sight. We have lost our job, home, and our family is no longer the same.Is this not a bill of rights violation or some kind of violation of our privacy that can stop the current case or that can be investigated?The following is based on hundreds of documents and numerous affidavits entered into the record since the case commenced in February 2009. A timeline of events with references to this evidence (including docket numbers) can be found in a document filed with the Court in October 2013. Please click here to view this document (the file is 20 MB in size, so please be patient).Beginning in 2001, Dassault and its partners, IBM and MSC Software, initiated business agreements with Mr. Childress' school as a means of promoting sales of Dassault's CATIA software and other services. These longstanding mutually advantageous business agreements included Dassault and MSC Software advertising on the school's top-ranked website (practicalcatia.com), and IBM and MSC Software providing Mr. Childress and his students with the CATIA software and licenses for use in their training (Dassault owned a substantial share of MSC Software).In 2004 Dassault put a plan into motion to end its 50-50 partnership with IBM and take control of sales, marketing, licensing, and distribution of CATIA, and to monopolize the CATIA training market. Dassault entered into a joint venture with a Canadian company named RAND Worldwide that had once been responsible for marketing, sales, licensing, and distribution of a CAD software program named Pro-E; a competitor of CATIA. This is the same function IBM had served since IBM and Dassault formed their partnership in 1981. Dassault and RAND Worldwide formed a new company named RAND North America which, unbeknownst to Mr. Childress, became his school's direct competitor when RAND North America opened an office near Mr. Childress' school and began offering CATIA trainingTo eliminate Mr. Childress' school as its competitor, Dassault filed a criminal complaint with the FBI in 2005 accusing Mr. Childress and his school of infringing on Dassault's CATIA copyright. Dassault's complaint led to a federal grand jury investigation and a related FBI raid of Mr. Childress' school while his son was teaching a class. Mr. Childress presented evidence of the business agreements Dassault and its partners initiated with Mr. Childress' school, including the hundreds of CATIA licenses IBM and MSC Software provided to Mr. Childress and his students as a result of these business agreements. In addition, Mr. Childress asked to testify before the federal grand jury. Mr. Childress and his school were subsequently exonerated of infringing on Dassault's CATIA copyright.Having failed in its attempt to close Mr. Childress' school, in February 2009 Dassault filed a multimillion-dollar civil suit accusing Mr. Childress and his family's school of infringing on Dassault's CATIA copyright and trademark. During the time in which Mr. Childress was alleged to have infringed on Dassault CATIA copyright and trademark, Dassault partners IBM and MSC Software had provided Mr. Childress and his students with hundreds of CATIA licenses, and Dassault was advertising on Mr. Childress' practicalcatia.com website.Mr. Childress could no longer afford legal representation, so he was forced to represent himself and his family in federal court without an attorney.In May 2009, Dassault filed a Motion for Entry of Default Judgment against Mr. Childress for a minor rule infraction. The Court granted Dassault's Motion for Entry of Default Judgment and the case was closed. Because Dassault won by "default", the court automatically adopted Dassault's damage claim, thus ordering Mr. Childress to pay Dassault $1,000,000 dollars in fictitious damages, and to surrender his training computer and his school's practicalcatia.com website to Dassault. The $1,000,000 damage award was based solely on Dassault's trumped-up lost revenues, not on Mr. Childress' and/or his school's income.The grand jury investigation left Mr. Childress and his family penniless, so Mr. Childress did not pay Dassault anything. However, Mr. Childress was forced to surrender his training computer to Dassault (containing his legally licensed CATIA software), and to take down his school's practicalcatia.com website (that Dassault had been advertising on for more than 5 years).Mr. Childress filed an immediate appeal.In a December 2011 "Published" Opinion, the Sixth Circuit reversed the district court's entry of Default Judgment, thus reopening the case. In June 2012, Mr. Childress filed an 11-Count Counterclaim, accusing Dass

My friends went in front of a grand jury as witnesses to see

My friends went in front of a grand jury as witnesses to see if there would be an indictment against a past employer. That happened about one month ago. The "defendant" has not yet heard anything either way whether or not the jury decided to indict. Since it has been over a month does that generally mean that there is no indictment?
