SCOTUS oral argument

SCOTUS heard oral argument in Maryland v. Shatzer on Monday, 5 October 2009.

Issue: Whether Edwards v. Arizona (1981), which bars police from initiating questioning with criminal suspects who have invoked their right to counsel, applies to an interrogation that takes place nearly three years later.

Here is a link to the transcript of that oral argument.

This case will be of interest to military justice practitioners (having been there, done that), it’s likely to happen every now and again.
