State v. Ahmed, 2019 UT App 65 (April 25, 2019)

Apr 25, 2019

This appeal arose out of the intersection between privilege and the Confrontation Clause.  Provisionally reversing the conviction, the Court of Appeals held that the district court erred in denying the defendant access to a surveillance location, which was not privileged.  Although a trial court may impose reasonable limitations on cross-examination concerning privileged material under the Confrontation Clause, the trial court can may impose those limitations only if the evidence sought by the defendant is privileged.
