Supreme Court Considers 911 Statements

Yesterday the Supreme Court heard oral argument in two cases involving the admissibility of statements from victims who later refuse to testify. One involves a 911 call; the other case involves statements to police. The Seattle Times: Nation & World: Justices skeptical of using victims' unsworn statements

The 911 case, Davis v. Washington, is a review of a Washington Supreme Court case. See earlier post.

For summaries of both Davis v. Washington and its companion case, Hammon v. Indiana, along with links to the lower court opinions, see On the Docket (from Medill School of Journalism).
