Abstract

This note examines the Supreme Court's decision which precludes the use of a screen to obstruct a witness' view of the defendant during a criminal trial. Although the Court attached great importance to the psychological impact of facing the accused, this note concludes the Coy decision will not serve to prohibit obstructing a witness' view of the defendant when such measures are found necessary to protect the witness.
