Confrontation Clause and Child Abuse

The United States Supreme Court is in the process of hearing a case dealing with the Confrontation Clause and child abuse dealing with a case from Ohio.  The Mississippi Supreme Court has held that the Confrontation Clause also applies in a civil context also with child abuse.  A link to an article about it is here.  This case could have some far-reaching implications in how abuse cases are litigated both civilly and criminally.
