In a 1984 case before the US Supreme Court, the ruling in Berkemer v. McCarty was that a person in police custody is entitled to their Miranda rights before being questioned. During the trial, Judge Wellford argued that prearrest statements were admissible and criticized the trial court for not suppressing postarrest statements. The Court's ruling was a unanimous 9-0 decision, with Justice Blackmun delivering the opinion, and Justice Stevens filing a concurring opinion. This case involved two related cases, Oregon v. Roberti and Berkemer v. McCarty, which were consolidated for the trial. The Court's decision reversed the previous ruling in California v. Beheler and affirmed the stating that the person in custody is not protected from making self-incriminating statements to police.

In Berkemer v. McCarty 468 US 420 (1984), Justice Stevens filed a concurring opinion with the majority. He felt that the court should have shown judicial restraint and focused only on the question asked by the petitioner.
