The US Supreme Court granted certiorari in one case today: Michigan v. Bryant.  Scotusblog provides links to the lower court opinion, petition for cert. and opposition:

Issue: Whether preliminary inquiries of a wounded citizen concerning the perpetrator and circumstances of the shooting are nontestimonial because they were "made under circumstances objectively indicating that the primary purpose of the interrogation is to enable police assistance to meet an ongoing emergency," including not only aid to a wounded victim, but also the prompt identification and apprehension of an apparently violent and dangerous individual?
