Abstract: MOST OF THE DECISIONS ARE SUPPLEMENTAL TO THOSE INCLUDED IN EARLIER VOLUMES; HOWEVER, IN A FEW CASES THE EXPERTS CONSULTED SUGGEST THAT THE NEW OPINIONS BE SUBSTITUTED FOR OPINIONS PREVIOUSLY SET FORTH. IN GENERALS, THIS MATERIAL COVERS CRIMINAL JUSTICE CASES DECIDED IN 1975 AND 1976 COURT SITTINGS. THE COURT'S SYLLABUS IS SUPPLIED RATHER THAN EXCERPTS FROM THE DECISION, ALTHOUGH FOR A FEW NOTABLE CASES, THE MAJOR PORTION OF THE COURT OPINION IS GIVEN. INVESTIGATION ISSUES COVERED INCLUDE: THE EXCLUSIONARY RULE OF THE FOURTH AMENDMENT, ARTICLES SUBJECT TO SEIZURE, THE WARRANTLESS QUEST, SURVEILLANCE OF A SUSPECT AT LIBERTY, EXAMINATION OF A SUSPECT IN CUSTODY, AND DEVELOPING EVIDENCE FROM THE DEFENDANT AFTER ACCUSATION. ADJUDICATION ISSUES INCLUDE: ACCUSATORY AUTHORITY, DISCOVERY AND DISCLOSURE RULES, EXTRADITION AND THE ATTENDANCE OF WITNESSES, MENTAL INCAPACITY, FORMER JEOPARDY AND MULTIPLE PUNISHMENT, MISTRIALS, THE GUILTY PLEA AS A WAIVER, RIGHT TO COUNSEL, NUMBER AND COMPOSITION OF JURY, THE DEFENDANT AS A WITNESS, CHARGING THE JURY, THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF THE PRESENTENCE REPORT, AND USE OF THE FEDERAL HABEAS CORPUS PROCEDURE.
