Judge Niess determined that this was an illegal meeting, unauthorized by the Wisconsin Constitution, and therefore none of the actions taken during that meeting had any effect. He observed, "The rule of law-the very bedrock of the Wisconsin Constitution-cannot, in any respect, abide enforcement of laws that do not exist."

Police adopt improved lineup practices to avoid false IDs

Human memory is a complex phenomenon. It does not act like a tape recorder, laying out events exactly as they occurred, but rather is a series of impressions guided by emotions, expectations and biases. Moreover, research dating as far back as the 1930s has shown that memories can change over time in response to stimuli such as reconsideration, repetition and outside influence.

This is important to understand when assessing eyewitness testimony and suspect identifications. A seminal paper published in 1978 concluded that many common techniques police use in lineups and photo arrays can unduly influence eyewitnesses.
