Everyone’s favorite amendment! Everyone loves to take the Fifth! Whether it be in court to prevent self incrimination, or at home to avoid the stare of family members who are PO’ed that you took the last brownie, people are using this amendment at an alarming rate! So this class looks at recent Supreme Court cases dealing with the Fifth Amendment, including Salinas v. Texas, 133 S.Ct. 2174 (2013), White v. Woodall, 134 S.Ct. 1697 (2014), Kansas v. Cheever, 134 S. Ct. 596 (2013), Evans v. Michigan, 568 U.S. ___ (2013), Perry v. New Hampshire, 132 S.Ct. 716 (2012) and J. D. B. v. North Carolina, 131 S. Ct. 2394 (2011). In one particularly ironic case, it deals with whether a person can claim the right to remain silent by … being silent. Turns out you can’t!
