The Supreme Court hearing in Smith v. Arizona focused on the Sixth Amendment right for criminal defendants to confront witnesses.

The defendant, Jason Smith, is challenging his convictions because the prosecution didn’t present the witness who analyzed the drugs.

Justice Sam Alito’s questioning about tasting methamphetamine and marijuana highlighted the issue of whether the expert’s opinion is valid without the witness’s testimony.

The case should be decided by late June.
