Congratulations to a high school buddy of mine, William Molner, a State of Michigan Assistant General Attorney, who helped prepare this case and was present when the case was argued three months ago, here is his post from FaceBook:
"I was one of three Assistant Attorneys General assigned to Berghuis v Thompkins that was argued in the United States Supreme Court two months ago. Today, the Court ruled in our favor and held that suspects now must explicitly tell police they want to be silent to invoke Miranda protections during criminal interrogations, just as they must tell police that they want a lawyer."
Good work Bill!
