Abstract:
Since the United States Supreme Court's decision in Crawford v. Washington, and even more so after its ruling in Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts, interest has been growing in the use of remote testimony as a method to satisfy the Confrontation Clause when a witness cannot be present at trial. Almost all recent proposals for implementation of remote testimony have called for remote two-way testimony. This bulletin discusses the viability of such a technique and alternatives to it.

Abstract:
In North Carolina the motion for appropriate relief (MAR) is a single, unified post-trial procedure for raising errors made during a criminal trial. Both defendants and the State are permitted to file MARs. One procedural issue that arises in connection with MARs is whether they can be resolved on the filed papers or whether hearings are necessary or required. This bulletin addresses that issue, setting out the law governing when a hearing is required on a MAR and discussing the related issue of the showing the movant must make to succeed on a MAR.

Abstract:
Under the new Crawford analysis, a testimonial hearsay statement by a person who does not testify at trial is inadmissible unless the prosecution establishes unavailability and a prior opportunity to cross-examine. Courts have struggled to apply this analysis to various types of forensic reports, including autopsy reports, drug tests and chemical analysts' affidavits. This Bulletin examines Williams v. Illinois, the U.S. Supreme Court's latest decision applying Crawford to forensic reports, and analyzes its implications on criminal cases in North Carolina.
