This casenote will summarize the case scenario and holding in Arizona v. Roberson. To place Roberson in context, it will then examine the legal history of the fifth amendment right to counsel and will critically analyze Roberson by questioning the necessity of its holding, reviewing the Court's cost/benefit analysis, and examining the dangers of overextending the rule in Edwards. Finally, this casenote will discuss Roberson's potential impact.
