Confrontation Cases Decided

Today the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decisions in Davis and Hammon, the follow up cases to the Supreme Court's landmark Confrontation Clause decision in Crawford v. Washington. Davis and Hammon applied Crawford to domestic violence cases in the context of 911 calls and accusations to responding officers, respectively. SCOTUSblog has gathered several people to participate in a discussion board about the cases, and I will add my own thoughts later today. Michigan law professor Richard Friedman, who argued the Hammon case before the Supreme Court, has his initial take up already. His first impression? "[F]or a guy who has just won his first Supreme Court case 8-1, I’m feeling pretty grumpy."
