Before a case goes to the supreme court there is a person, or in this case a group of people, who feel they have been mistreated in some way. In this case, multiple people said they were not fully aware of their rights before getting questioned by the police.
You didn't read me my rights before questioning me!!
We don't have to idiot!!
There are three ways to get into the supreme court, writ of certiorari, appeal, or original jurisdiction. This case came from appeal.
Will you take our case?
After the person or group forms a case they must submit it to the supreme court, then the supreme court will decide if they want to take it or not.
Once the court takes the case the two sides have to write a brief then present their side to the judges.
It is not fair to make people get questioned without giving them their rights.
But they wouldn't have to be questioned in the first place if they weren't criminals.
The supreme court then votes to make their decision. In this case Miranda won 5 to 4.
The court's decision is put into practice right after they make their decision.
You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law...
