Sotomayor on Berghuis v. Thompkins
Speaking at University of Denver College of Law last week, Justice Sotomayor responded to a law student's query about the Court's decision this past June in Berghuis v. Thompkins, in which she authored a dissenting opinion, joined by Justices Ginsburg, Stevens, and Breyer.
Sotomayor answers that she does not believe that the Court is "eroding Miranda," and discusses advice from Justice Souter about interpreting disagreements amongst the Court.
The C-Span video is available here; the question starts at approximately 14:00.
