Suppression Matters Under Massachusetts Law
Select a format
Avoid reaching erroneous conclusions with help from the premier source for analyzing, preparing, and judging motions to suppress evidence, statements, and identifications. Whether you're handling a District Court case charging operating under the influence or a Superior Court case charging murder, this indispensable guide will assist you in analyzing a fact pattern, recognizing problems, and understanding and advancing the relevant suppression issue.
Because state law is more defendant-friendly than federal law, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and law enforcement agencies need to master the peculiarities and understand the greater protections afforded by Articles 12 and 14 of the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights and common law. This clearly written and easy-to-use reference helps you grasp the subtleties of the state's unique constitutional and common law protections and suppression of evidence, statements, and identifications quickly and efficiently. The portable, single volume includes valuable practice aids such as a table of cases, glossary index, bibliography, diagrams, graphs, and more.
