The Supreme Court ruling in the case of Miranda v. Arizona established the right of a defendant to be informed of his constitutional right to remain silent after being taken in custody by the policy and the right to have an attorney. The specific wording of the Miranda rights, which are spoken to suspects on television and which many American television viewers have committed to memory, are taken from Chief Justice Earl Warren`s opinion.
