Michigan: Feiger sues AG

The Detroit News reports: Southfield attorney Geoffrey Fieger filed a federal lawsuit today against U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and the Federal Election Commission, alleging a grand jury investigation of Fieger and his law firm is unlawful.

A federal grand jury has been investigating more than $50,000 in political donations made to Democrat John Edwards by Fieger and Fieger associates when Edwards was a candidate for his party's 2004 presidential nomination. ...

In his lawsuit, Fieger alleges such a matter can only be referred to the attorney general after an investigation and referral by the FEC. Fieger alleges such a referral never happened. He asks the court for a declaration that the grand jury investigation is unlawful. -- Fieger sues U.S. Attorney General
