Inmates subject to interrogation may not be subject to "custodial" interrogation Login/Join

More on this in the forthcoming case summaries this week. But, today, the SCOTUS held (6-3)that simply because in inmate is questioned does not automatically mean the inmate is subject to custodial interrogation such that he must receive Miranda warnings before any statement will be admissible. The language used in summoning the inmate and the manner in which he is interrogated are crucial. http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/11pdf/10-680.pdf

We already had a similar case in Texas, but it's nice to see the Supremes agree with us. Smile
