Danforth v. Minnesota
No. 06-8273

    Stephen Danforth v. Minnesota



  1. Are state supreme courts required to use the standard announced in Teague v. Lane, 489 U.S. 288 (1989), to determine whether United States Supreme Court decisions apply retroactively to state-court criminal cases, or may a state court apply state-law- or state-constitution-based retroactivity tests that afford application of Supreme Court decisions to a broader class of criminal defendants than the class defined by Teague?

  2. Did Crawford v. Washington, 541 U.S. 36 (2004), announce a "new rule of constitutional criminal procedure," as Teague defines that phrase and, if it did, was it a watershed rule of procedure subject to full retroactive application?
