Grand jury clears Jordan in cocaine accusation

Special Prosecutor Arthur Christy announced Wednesday that a New York grand jury has cleared Hamilton Jordan, the White House chief of staff, of allegations that he used cocaine at New York's Studio 54 disco on June 27, 1978. In a 53 -page report on his five-month investigation to a special three-judge court, Mr. Christy said he and the grand jury found insufficient evidence to prosecute Mr. Jordan on narcotics charges.

The New York Times reported earlier this week that three of Mr. Jordan's accusers, including the co- owners of the exclusive discotheque, were unable to pass lie detector tests when questioned closely about their allegations.
