Analysis of Kansas v. Ventris

The SCOTUSblog has an interesting analysis of yesterday's Supreme Court decision on Kansas v. Ventris.
In its decision Wednesday in Kansas v. Ventris (No. 07-1356), the Supreme Court ruled that the government may impeach a defendant’s testimony using statements obtained during an interrogation that violated his Sixth Amendment right to counsel, even though the prosecution would be barred from using such tainted evidence as part of its case in chief.
