Melendez-Diaz Still Good Law

Can’t remember the last time a one sentence per curiam opinion was such good news. Here’s the entire opinion in Briscoe v. Virginia:


We vacate the judgment of the Supreme Court of Virginia and remand the case for further proceedings not inconsistent with the opinion in Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts, 557 U. S. ___ (2009).

It is so ordered.

They probably realized that anything they did would be irrelevant since Virginia totally revamped the procedure last Summer.

But there were other States like Louisiana that had similar laws upheld by the Supreme Court. Where does this leave them?
