People v JJJ

Michael J. Nichols

Case Conclusion Date:November 1, 2008

Practice Area:DUI / DWI

Outcome:Blood Alcohol Estimate Excluded

Description:The client was arrested and charged based on a blood alcohol estimate by the Michigan State Police lab of .29 grams/100 mL of blood. There was just one problem: the Michigan State Police lab refused to report the 'uncertainty' in the measurement. I spent over 2 years fighting this injustice and assembled a team that eventually won! Now the Michigan State Police are attempting to measure the degree of "uncertainty in the measurement."
