Two days ago, the Ohio Supreme Court issued a decision clarifying how specific a motion to suppress must be for the defendant to receive an evidentiary hearing on the motion. In State v. Codeluppi (2014), the Court concluded: "[A] highly detailed pleading of the facts and law is not required to satisfy the Shindler notice requirements and to trigger the right to a hearing on the motion to suppress." This conclusion affirmed the Court's decision from a decade ago in State v. Shindler (1994). The… [read post]

By Jessica Towne I’ve been writing about how to survive probation in my Georgia Driver newsletter lately. Probation requirements are usually written in dense legalese and use jargon that many probationers don’t understand. One requirement of probation that is easy to understand is paying fees on time. I suggest to those who have no money, to report to probation anyway and tell the officer why they aren’t making a payment. A judge is never authorized to revoke probation because a… [read post]

I recently posted on the initial steps after getting a DUI and the decision to hire a DUI attorney. The decision to go to jury trial and which attorney to hire should go hand in hand. Some attorneys never go to trial. Things happen in cases where a previously poor case for trial may evolve into a viable one. For instance, in one case where a young client crashed into two cars at 7:15am in the morning, and was found to be over .25% BAC, the officer made multiple mistakes in both PAS and breath… [read post]

Governor Deal has been touched by the plight of epileptic and other chronically ill children in Georgia, and is waging a valiant war to get marijuana THC oil approved for their use. Despite getting a bill permitting medical use of THC through both houses, he failed to successfully usher it all the way through the final approval process, and it didn’t become law. But he isn’t stopping there; no, our governor is now proposing to have one of our state universities conduct clinical studies… [read post]

In Florida, the law establishes what it considers a legal limit for a driver's blood alcohol content. Most people know that the legal limit in Florida in DUI cases is 0.08. If a person blows a 0.08 or higher on the breathalyzer, that does not necessarily mean he/she will be convicted of DUI, but it is certainly evidence that state can use to try and prove a DUI case in court. How many drinks it takes to get to 0.08 depends on various factors including body weight, metabolism, food intake and… [read post]

Pursuant to the foregoing undisputed facts, the plaintiff has cross moved for summary judgment. A party moving or summary judgment must make a prima facie showing of entitlement to judgment as a matter of law, offering sufficient evidence to demonstrate the absence of any material issues of fact. Of course, summary judgment is a drastic remedy and should not be granted where there is any doubt as to the existence of a triable issue, but once a prima facie showing has been made, the burden shifts to… [read post]

Through cross-examination at the hearing it became apparent that e-tickets differ in a number of important respects from UTTs. First, with e-tickets there is only one document: the simplified traffic information. Everyone receives a duplicate original of the e-ticket with the arresting officer's electronic signature affixed. Second, the e-ticket is printed in one color. Third, it is one-sided. While in the court's view, it would be advisable for the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles to more… [read post]
