Below are links to the Supreme Court case Miranda v. Arizona.  We downloaded the full text of the Court’s opinion from both Westlaw and LexisNexis.  Each opinion is labeled and annotated to show you the key parts of a case opinion, such as the case citation, case name, the year the case was decided, etc.  All of this information will help you navigate a court opinion and better understand the court’s discussion and its precedential value.
