Warner v. Ocampo

Petition for certiorari denied on June 29, 2012
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
11-614 9th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2011

Issue: (1) Whether the Ninth Circuit contravened the directives of the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 (“AEDPA”) when it concluded that testimony describing an interview, but not admitting an actual statement, violates the Confrontation Clause whenever the substance of an out-of-court testimonial statement is likely to be inferred by the jury; and (2) whether, when this Court has not clearly established whether the Confrontation Clause prohibits testimony describing a police interview without offering out-of-court statements, the Ninth Circuit violated 28 U.S.C. § 2254(d) by determining the state court adjudication of the confrontation claim was objectively unreasonable.
