Improved Standards

He was, however, always willing to discuss the problem of assuring justice for all, especially the poor, in a democratic society. For example, following the now famous 1966 United States Supreme Court ruling in the case of Miranda v. Arizona, landmark decision that assures suspects of being given notice of their legal rights before submitting to police questioning, Mr. Marden said, “In the long view it's a healthy thing and it should result in better police practices, better trials, more justice.”

While seeking fair legal breaks for suspects, Mr. Marden also worked for improvement of the quality of judges and lawyers. Only last year he became a member of a committee of lawyers formed to raise the standards for lawyers practicing in the Federal courts in New York, Connecticut and Vermont, and in 1972 was one of eight prominent lawyers who joined in denouncing the election of city judges as a “farce and a charade.” He favored the selection of judges on the basis of merit, and without political considerations.
