ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the structure and content of appellate argument relative to the case of Samuel H. Sheppard. The United States Supreme Court on June 6, 1966 convicted this man of murdering his wife. The decision in this case was the first decision by the Supreme Court recognizing that pervasive and prejudicial publicity of a trial may deter a defendant from obtaining a fair trial in relation with the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Sheppard was a famous doctor, and because the murder of his wife was considered heinous, his case caught the attention of the Cleveland press.
