BIO and reply brief in Rose v. Michigan
I've been tied up, in large part with grading, but now I'm going to try to catch up on some postings I've been meaning to make over the last few weeks. For starters, here are the Brief in Opposition and my Reply Brief in support of the petition for certiorari in Rose v. Michigan, which I presented in a prior post. (The petition seeks review of a decision allowing a child to testify from behind a screen in the trial courtroom; it raises the questions of whether this procedure was inherently prejudicial and of whether Maryland v. Craig, 497 U.S. 836 (1990), should be overruled.) The Supreme Court may decide whether or not to grant the petition as early as June 18.
