The re-examination process at the DMV is slogging along, and there's nothing happening in the courts. My BAC was 0.00% and the urinalysis returned positives for amphetamine (for which I have a prescription) and THC (which I swear on my daughter's life is a false positive.) As I explore the possible causes for my loss of consciousness with my doctor (narcolepsy, extreme fatigue and stress, hyperglycemia, and/or a silent stroke as evidenced by a tiny infarct in my brain by MRI), the DA has yet to file charges. In a DUI case where alcohol was not present and there's no clear chemical culprit on the urinalysis, can the DA hang back and see what transpires with the DMV then use that as evidence in a future case he or she might file?
