Linked from the front page of BNA’s U.S. Law Week are the annual review and a summary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2008-09 term for criminal cases.  The Court’s criminal law decisions included important, need-to-know rulings on double jeopardy, the admissibility of forensic laboratory reports, vehicle searches, prosecutorial immunity, and the scope of the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

Supreme Court rulings highlighted by criminal lawyers in BNA interviews include:

• Boyle v. United States
• Yeager v. United States
• Montejo v. Louisiana
• Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts
• Herring v. United States
• Kansas v. Ventris
• Montejo v. Louisiana
• Arizona v. Gant
• Oregon v. Ice
• Van de Kamp v. Goldstein

The Law Library at the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaii makes this resource and many others available to faculty, students and staff of the Law School and to other patrons visiting the Law Library.
