Berger v. California, 393 U.S. 314 (1969)

Berger v. California

No. 221, Misc.

Decided January 13, 1969

393 U.S. 314


The holding in Barber v. Page, 390 U. S. 719, that the absence of a witness from the jurisdiction would not justify the use at trial of preliminary hearing testimony unless the State had made a good faith effort to secure the witness' presence, should be given retroactive application.

Certiorari granted; 25 Cal.App.2d 622, 66 Cal.Rptr. 213, vacated and remanded.
