Does someone get paid and get reimbursed for travel when they testify in front of a grand jury? 

If you testify before a federal grand jury, do you get paid? Are travel and hotel costs reimbursed?

Response: Under 28 U.S. Code section 1821(b), witnesses receive an attendance fee of $40 per day. Witnesses are reimbursed for their reasonable travel expenses, and witnesses who must stay overnight to attend the grand jury sessions at which they testify are paid a subsistence allowance which is pegged to that allowed for federal employees when they travel. If you want to find out more about that, look at 28 U.S. Code section 1821 and 28 Code of Federal Regulations section 21.4.
