Does anybody know what a Dessueralt Hearing is?

Can anyone help me with suggestions on this? Would like to know the meaning of this and why can't I get a copy of this?

    DESSUREAULT HEARING - A hearing to determine whether or not the identification procedures used by the police were unduly suggestive. If the Court finds that they were, then those procedures used to prove identification cannot be admitted. If the Court finds that they were suggestive, then it has to find that the “in court” identification” or “out of court” identification, or both, were such that the defendant is guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt.”
