State's brief in Giles
California, the respondent, has just filed its brief in Giles, the case posing the issue whether a purpose to render the witness unavailable is necessary for forfeiture, even assuming the accused murdered the witness. You may see the brief by clicking here. If you want to look at papers previously posted, you may see the decision below and the petitioner's brief through this link, and the amicus brief of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers through this link. Amicus briefs supporting the respondent are due March 26, and the argument will be April 22.
