Compulsory process- Admission of scientific evidence
Janet C. Hoeffel
The Sixth Amendment’s Lost Clause: Unearthing Compulsory Process
2002 Wisconsin Law Review 1275 (2002)
Have you ever considered using the Compulsory Process Clause as the
basis for admitting scientific evidence? This incredible article
instructs you on novel ways to use this clause to enhance arguments
regarding the admission of scientific evidence. Professor Janet Hoeffel
argues that “[t]he Compulsory Process Clause has untapped power to right
the wrongs of expert evidence law run amok.”
Professor Hoeffel begins the article with a historical overview of the
Compulsory Process Clause of the Sixth Amendment. She includes
discussion of the leading Supreme Court decisions that have interpreted
it, noting the confusion in this jurisprudence. She cites cases
interpreting the Confrontation Clause and discusses how this
jurisprudence can assist with Compulsory Process Clause interpretation.
