The Supreme Court rules on two law-enforcement cases Tuesday. In the first, the high court throws out a Texas man's death sentence, ruling that prosecutors failed to provide adequate information to the man's defense. In another case, the justices found that a law enforcement officer involved in executing an invalid search warrant could be sued. NPR's Nina Totenberg reports.
