Arizona v. Martinez

Petition for certiorari denied on October 2, 2017
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
16-1489 Ariz. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2017

Issues: (1) Whether the Arizona Supreme Court erred in stretching the “overbreadth” test for facial unconstitutionality beyond the First Amendment context to strike down a bail restriction based on an application of the law not present in this case; and (2) whether the Arizona Supreme Court erred in applying heightened scrutiny—one standard among five used in the lower courts—to strike down a state regulatory measure that denies bail if a judge, after a full adversarial hearing, finds clear proof that the arrestee raped a child.
