Petitioner's brief in Melendez-Diaz
While we wait for the Supreme Court to decide Giles, Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts, the case that will decide whether forensic lab reports are testimonial, is moving ahead. To see the petitioner's main brief on the merits, filed this past Monday, click here. Jeff Fisher is lead counsel for the petitioner. Amicus briefs supporting the petitioner are due next Monday, June 23. I expect to file one; I believe these statements are clearly testimonial.
