DMV Wins Supreme Court Ruling on Officers Statements

DMV Wins Drunk Driving Case

08/07 1825

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 7 (UPI S) — The California Supreme Court has
ruled (Thursday) that the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles can use
unsworn police and forensic lab reports to suspend the licenses of
drunken drivers. Plaintiff Richard Lake had contended the DMV did not
present sufficient evidence to prove that he was driving with a blood
alcohol content of .08 or above.
