Moore v. Arizona

United States Supreme Court

414 U.S. 25 (1973)

Facts

Rockey Moore (defendant) was tried for murder in Arizona state court almost three years after he was initially charged. Moore was already incarcerated in California, but Moore repeatedly demanded for over two years that Arizona courts either extradite him for trial or dismiss the charges against him. Before trial, Moore filed a state habeas corpus petition, alleging that his speedy-trial rights had been denied in violation of the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. Arizona state courts denied Moore’s petition. The Arizona Supreme Court interpreted the United States Supreme Court decision in Barker v. Wingo, 407 U.S. 514 (1972) as a holding that a speedy-trial violation did not occur unless the defendant can demonstrate that his trial defense was prejudiced. The Arizona Supreme Court held that Moore was not prejudiced because he had a preliminary hearing and was able to subpoena witnesses. The United States Supreme Court granted certiorari.
