Miranda .vs. Arizona The dissenting opinion of the case, presented by John Harlan and Byron White, was that the court made a decision that was not stated in the constitution The majority opinion of the case, presented by Chief Justice Warren, was that “The person in custody must, prior to interrogation, be clearly informed that he has the right to remain silent, and that anything he says will be used against him in court.
