Martel v. Lujan

Petition for certiorari denied on November 10, 2014
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
14-132 9th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2014

Issue: Whether this Court has “clearly established,” within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. § 2254(d)(1), that where a state appellate court concludes certain pretrial statements should have been excluded from the prosecution’s case under Miranda v. Arizona, the court’s harmless error analysis must ignore the fact that the defendant also took the stand at trial and admitted the conduct involved in the offense.
