Micci v. Aleman

Petition for certiorari denied on June 25, 2012
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
11-1062 7th Cir. _ N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2011

Issue: (1) Whether the Seventh Circuit correctly held, on a question that has fractured the circuits, that police may be civilly liable for the use of a suspect’s custodial statement, obtained either in violation of Miranda v. Arizona or as a result of coercion, where the statement was introduced to charge the suspect but the charges were dismissed prior to trial; and (2) whether the Seventh Circuit correctly held – seemingly for the first time by any federal appellate court – that a police officer unconstitutionally coerced a suspect’s statements by using the routine interview technique of lying to the suspect about the strength of the case against him.
