Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
17-425 Idaho N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2017

Issue: Whether, when an officer elicits an admission from a suspect without providing a Miranda warning, the admissibility of the suspect’s post-warning statement is governed by the objective, suspect-focused test adopted by the plurality opinion in Missouri v. Seibert, or the subjective, officer-focused test adopted by Justice Anthony Kennedy’s separate opinion in that case.
