The Particular Witness Rule as established in Bullcoming v. New Mexico

June 23, 2011

On Sep­tem­ber 28, 2010, the Supreme Court of the United States accepted an obscure Pub­lic Defender case out of New Mex­ico cap­tioned Bull­com­ing v. New Mex­ico for con­sid­er­a­tion. In doing so, the pitched bat­tle of the con­straints and dic­ta­tions of the US Con­sti­tu­tion and the Con­fronta­tion Clause were yet again vis­ited by the high­est court in the land. The United States Supreme Court in a 5–4 deci­sion decided and firmly estab­lished the Par­tic­u­lar Wit­ness Rule as artic­u­lated and argued by Pro­fes­sor Jef­frey Fisher of Stanford. Attorney McShane discusses the Particular Witness Rule in his blog post: The Particular Witness Rule as established in Bullcoming v. New Mexico.
