Supreme Court Cases of Interest

Carol Garfiel Freeman

As of May 20, 15 criminal justice cases had been argued but were undecided. Among the undecided cases are Gamble v. United States (whether the separate sovereign doctrine of the double jeopardy clause of the Fifth Amendment should be overruled), Flowers v. Mississippi (a Batson issue), Mitchell v. Wisconsin (does an implied consent law provide an exception to the warrant requirement of the Fourth Amendment when the motorist is unconscious), and Carpenter v. Murphy (do the 1866 boundaries of Indian reservation affect the ability of Oklahoma to prosecute crimes today). All should be resolved by the end of June.
