Supreme Court Docket
Kansas v. Ventris
Criminal Law and Procedure, Sixth Amendment, Miranda Rights
Whether a criminal defendant’s “voluntary statement obtained in the absence of a
knowing and voluntary waiver of the [Sixth Amendment] right to counsel,” Michigan
v. Harvey, 494 U.S. 344, 354 (1990), is admissible for impeachment purposes—a
question the Court expressly left open in Harvey and which has resulted in a deep
and enduring split of authority in the Circuits and state courts of last resort?
