I know this is a silly question, but if the "Common Law Grand Jury" has the power to order a district judge to sign a writ, why don't they have the power to sign the writ themselves? You know, cut out the middle-man.
Putting it differently, what's the point of inventing a fantasy legal system in which you need judges to sign things for you if you can invent a fantasy legal system in which there are no judges and you can just sign things yourself?
Thanks in advance

A grand jury is a panel of jurors who deliberate on the merits of a criminal charge brought by the public prosecutor and decide whether the defendant should be tried. The functioning of these panels established by courts of first instance is typical for common law countries where there is no preliminary investigation or enquiry due to the absence of such procedures in the criminal procedure law. In cases prescribed by law, the verification of the validity of the charges is entrusted to citizens who are members of grand juries. During grand jury proceedings, citizens perform some of the functions of preliminary investigation bodies. Hence, the grand juries are sometimes called "juries of enquiry or investigatory juries", similar to coroner's juries. Given that grand juries also decide whether an accused is brought to trial, these bodies are often also referred to as juries of accusation.
