Among the court’s actions Monday: striking down an Arizona law requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote in federal elections, a ruling limiting Miranda’s reach before a witness is arrested, and a decision that certain facts that could boost a mandatory minimum sentence must be found by a jury, not a judge.
