This week, in Howes v. Fields, No. 10-280 (Feb. 21, 2012), the United States Supreme Court reiterated that whether an individual is “in custody” for the purposes of Miranda rights is a fact-dependent inquiry that evaluates all features of an interrogation.  The most pertinent inquiry is whether, when looking at all the circumstances, a reasonable person would feel free to terminate the law enforcement interview and leave, even if the […]

Public Employees must abide by Minnesota Same-Sex Marriage Law

A number of my public clients have posed an interesting question about the new same-sex marriage law in Minnesota:  What if an employee in a public licensing office refuses to provide a marriage license to a same-sex couple on the basis that same-sex marriage conflicts with the public employee’s religious beliefs? Though this presents an interesting legal issue, the answer is fairly straightforward based on application of the Minnesota Human […]
