CRAWFORD v. WASHINGTON, No. 02-9410. Argued November 10, 2003--Decided March 8, 2004
Held: The State�s use of Sylvia�s statement violated the Confrontation Clause because, where testimonial statements are at issue, the only indicium of reliability sufficient to satisfy constitutional demands is confrontation. Pp. 5�33.
MISSOURI v. SEIBERT, No. 02-1371. Argued December 9, 2003--Decided June 28, 2004
Dickerson v. United States, 530 U.S. 428, reaffirmed Miranda, holding that Miranda's constitutional character prevailed against a federal statute that sought to restore the old regime of giving no warnings and litigating most statements' voluntariness. The technique of interrogating in successive, unwarned and warned phases raises a new challenge to Miranda.
[The above decision brings to light law enforcement attempts to circumvent the constitutional requirements of Miranda. - TJL]
