Practice Area: Criminal Defense
Outcome: No Collateral Estoppel found by the court granting a 1538.5 on a DUI case. It does not bind the DMV.
Description: Petition for review after the Court of Appeal reversed the judgment in an action for administrative mandamus. This case concerns the effect to be given criminal court rulings suppressing evidence pertaining to and dismissing a charge of driving with 0.08% blood alcohol at an administrative proceeding concerning suspension of the defendant's driver's license. (Veh. Code section 13353.2.) I did the Amicus opinion.
