Supreme Court Previews: “The Right to Remain Silent” and “Free Speech and the War Against HIV/AIDS”
April 22, 2013
Of counsel Sidney Rosdeitcher and law clerk Katriana Roh published previews of two Supreme Court cases: Salinas v. Texas and Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International, Inc.
Salinas v. Texas, which was argued on April 17, examines whether the Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination bars the use at trial of silence during a pre-arrest, pre-custodial police interview.
Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society, which was argued on April 22, questions whether a government-imposed condition violates the First Amendment. This condition requires non-governmental organizations receiving grants from the government's global program to combat HIV/AIDS to adopt a policy affirmatively opposing prostitution.
SCOTUSblog mentions both previews, which were published on the Brennan Center's website.
