Florida v. Deviney

Petition for certiorari denied on November 4, 2013
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
13-264 Fla. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2013

Issue: (1) Whether the decision of the Florida Supreme Court, holding that a suspect expressing his desire to go home unequivocally and unambiguously invoked his right to remain silent under Miranda v. Arizona , conflicts with Davis v. United States, Berghuis v. Thompkins, and decisions of federal and state appellate courts; and (2) whether a suspect's confession to his mother, while alone with her in a police interview room at his request, must be excluded as the fruit of an earlier confession to the police that violated Miranda.
