1. Bell v. Burson. Normally a driver’s license is considered “a privilege — not a right”, and there were few remedies available to a driver who wished to contest a suspension.
2. Berkemer v. Mc Carty. The Supreme Court is called upon to apply Miranda to a drunk driving case: When is a suspect “in custody” for purposes of determining whether the Miranda warnings must be given before questioning?
3. Blanton v. North Las Vegas. Does a defendant charged with drunk driving have a right to a jury trial? Not necessarily, according to the U.S. Supreme Court.
4. Bray v. Maryland. The landmark case requiring the prosecution to produce upon request any evidence that is “material” to the issue of guilt. See also, Arizona v. Youngblood where the Court held that it is a violation of due process for the prosecution to destroy evidence “in bad faith” which although not “clearly exculpable” was nevertheless potentially useful.
5. California v. Trombetta. Where a breath test is given by the police, the sample is captured in a test chamber, analyzed and purged out of the machine and into the air; nothing is saved.
6. Crawford v. Washington. In a prosecution of a man accused of stabbing another man who raped his wife, the prosecution played a tape recording of the wife describing the stabbing.
7. Gideon v. Wainright. This landmark case dealt with a defendant charged with a felony who was broke and requested the Court for a public defender. The request was refused since state law provided for PD’s only in capital cases.
8. Kumho Tire v. Carmichae. The Federal Rules of Evidence, (FRE 702) permits an expert to give his opinion “if scientific, technical, or other specialized knowledge will assist the trier of fact…” In this case, the trial judge excluded expert opinion testimony as to tire design because he found it unreliable.
9. Mapp v. Ohio. Landmark case in which the U.S. Supreme Court established the “Exclusionary Rule” by holding that “all evidence obtained by searches and seizures in violation of the Constitution is, by [the Fourth Amendment], inadmissible in a state court.”
10. Michigan v. Sitz. In a 6-3 decision, the Court appeared to have forgotten about the Constitution and instead focused on the nation’s drunk driving problem: “No one can seriously dispute the magnitude of the drunken driving problem or the States’ interest in eradicating it….the weight bearing on the other scale—the measure of the intrusion on motorists stopped briefly at sobriety checkpoints—is slight.”
