Miranda v. Arizona Commemorative Event
The landmark Miranda v. Arizona United States Supreme Court opinion was issued on June 13, 1966. That decision arose out of the arrest and trial of Ernesto Miranda, who was interrogated, jailed and tried in our Historic Old Courthouse Building.
To commemorate this historic decision and our unique connection to it, on June 13, 2016, fifty years to the day that the decision was issued, the Maricopa County Superior Court, in conjunction with the Maricopa County Justice Museum and Learning Center Foundation, is hosting a special, invitation-only event in the building where these historic events occurred.
Please join us in the Maricopa County Superior Court Ceremonial Courtroom for a lunch hour panel featuring Officer Carroll Cooley, the officer who arrested and interrogated Ernesto Miranda, along with Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Barry Silverman, a noted authority on Ernesto Miranda and the Miranda case. They will discuss the very interesting details and facts about the arrest and interrogation of Miranda and the Superior Court trial that culminated in one of the most significant constitutional law decisions in modern history.
