Eliminating sex discrimination through research, education and legal activities
Holding: The introduction at trial of statements made by a three-year-old boy to his teachers identifying his mother’s boyfriend as the source of his injuries did not violate the Confrontation Clause, when the child did not testify at trial, because the statements were not made with the primary purpose of creating evidence for prosecution.
Judgment: Reversed and remanded, 9-0, in an opinion by Justice Alito on June 18, 2015. Justice Scalia filed an opinion concurring in the judgement, in which Justice Ginsburg joined. Justice Thomas filed an opinion concurring in the judgement.
