  1. -02-28-07 Supreme Court Ruling Not Retroactive (Christian Science Monitor)
      "At issue in Mr. Bockting's case was whether the high court would apply retroactively its 2004 holding that defendants must be given a chance to cross-examine or otherwise confront witnesses against them in their trials."

      "The majority justices in the Crawford case said such practices by judges violated the constitutional principle behind the confrontation clause. In the context of an adversarial trial, one of the most efficient ways for a judge or jury to ascertain the truth is to give the accused the right to confront in open court those making the accusations." 02-07
