State v. Lujan, 2020 UT 5 (Feb. 11, 2020)

Feb 11, 2020

Abrogating State v. Ramirez, 817 P.2d 774 (Utah 1991), the supreme court held that the admissibility of eyewitness identification testimony should be analyzed first under the rules of evidence, but noted that the state and federal due process clauses may operate as a backstop in cases of suggestive police activity.
