U.S. Supreme Court
Fare v. Michael C., 439 U.S. 1310 (1978)
Fare v. Michael C.
Decided July 28, 1978
439 U.S. 1310
Application to stay, pending the filing of a petition for certiorari, California Supreme Court's judgment ordering a rehearing in the trial court for respondent juvenile on the ground that a confession obtained after respondent had requested his probation officer's presence and relied on by the trial court in finding respondent guilty of murder was inadmissible under Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U. S. 436, is granted. The order in question was predicated on federal, not state, grounds; the balance of equities favors applicant; and it is likely that four Justices of this Court will vote to grant certiorari.
