The constitution does say they have the right to face their accuser. I think they actually upheld the Constitution this time.

Contagion, they haven't done anything yet. David Savage at the LA Times is just specualting based on the oral arguments. But I'm very much inclined to side with the apparent majority here: the Sixth Amendment guarantees a defendant's right to confront their accuser. In practice, that means live testimony in open court, subject to cross-examination.
