On October 4, in Howes v. Fields, the Court will consider whether a prisoner is always “in custody” for purposes of Miranda v. Arizona whenever he is isolated from the general prison population. Alan Raphael, an associate professor of law at Loyola University Chicago, previews the case for the American Bar Association’s PREVIEW of U.S. Supreme Court Cases; the ABA has generously agreed to share some of its previews – which are authored by practitioners and scholars in the field – with SCOTUSblog.  You can read Professor Raphael’s preview here; PREVIEW’s website is here.
