SCOTUS Grants Cert. in Seven Criminal Cases
The U.S. Supreme Court today granted review in seven criminal cases. Among the issues the Court will address are two Sixth Amendment issues: whether a defendant whose Sixth Amendment right to counsel has attached and who has been appointed counsel must "accept" the appointment before he becomes unapproachable by the police; and whether the prosecution can use the fruit of a Massiah violation for impeachment purposes.
You can see the full list of cases, with links to related documents, here. [Mike Mannheimer].
