Case Conclusion Date:June 21, 1991
Practice Area:DUI / DWI
Outcome:Felony DWI dismissed
Description:In 1989, Mr. Fiandach's investigation disclosed a witness to "lot switching" in the manufacture of DWI Breathalyzer® ampoules. His Rochester hearings were the basis upon with the New York City Criminal Court suppressed Breathalyzer® tests in People v. Serrano, 142 Misc2d 1087. His 1991 appellate victory in People v. Uruburu, 169 AD2d 20, reversed the order of the Monroe County Court (Wisner. J., presiding) and mandated suppression in an untold number of DWI cases statewide (see e.g., People v. Sperber 199 AD2d 725).
