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:
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.

Abstract:
Recently the General Assembly made significant changes to the statutes governing decedents' estates. These amendments included an effort to capture the range of contested estate issues into a general, defined category and to set rules to govern them. The new legislation designates these matters as \"estate proceedings\" and goes on to specify the procedures that apply to their adjudication--from filing to litigation to hearing to appeal. This bulletin discusses the new procedural framework for contested estate proceedings.
