The petition of the day is:

16-1063

Issues: (1) Whether the government violated the petitioners’ Fifth Amendment rights by using their post-arrest, pre-Miranda v. Arizona-warnings silence as substantive evidence of their guilt in the government’s case-in-chief; and (2) whether the Maritime Drug Law Enforcement Act may constitutionally be applied in a foreign-bounded case involving the foreign transport of drugs to foreign shores by foreign residents on a foreign vessel, without a sufficient nexus to the United States.
