Cert petition on "Who must testify?"
Sooner or later, the Supreme Court will have to resolve the question of who must testify to the substance of a lab test. Indeed, with Briscoe now safely off the Supreme Court's docket, this would be a logical next issue for the Court to tackle; the justices were interested in it both in Melendez-Diazand in Briscoe. Jeff Fisher has just filed a cert petition raising this issue in Pendergrass v. Indiana, seeking review of Pendergrass v. State, 913 N.E.2d 703 (Ind. 2009). You can read it by clicking here.
