Nobody Told Me There’d Be Days Like These! – June 27

SCOPE OF PROGRAM:
Most serious legal malpractice claims and successful state bar disciplinary actions are brought not for debatable violations of arcane, ambiguous, provisions of the Rules of Professional Conduct, but, in fact, for clear breaches of obvious, well-defined ethical obligations. (Don’t take money from the client trust account. Don’t sleep with the attractive domestic client you are representing in an ongoing divorce proceeding. Be candid with the court., etc..) It’s not rocket science—in fact, anyone who has sat in on a basic Professional Responsibility class would know such conduct is ethically problematic. And yet it happens. A lot. Even to our own friends and colleagues.

This engaging, highly interactive program provides a fresh and practical perspective on the fundamental question, “Why do ‘good’ lawyers ‘go bad’?” Based on a brand new original short film, written and co-produced by Michael and Chris, interspersed with a discussion among 4 experienced legal malpractice defense attorneys regarding the intersection of ethical decision-making and the manifold sources of stress encountered by attorneys in day-to-day practice.

Indiana Law Allows you to Take Another Breath Test for Alcohol if the First Results in Insufficient Sample

By Richard Mann, Richard A. Mann, P.C., Indianapolis

On May 31, 2017, the Indiana Supreme Court reversed the suspension of a woman’s driver’s license for allegedly refusing to take a breath test.  A state trooper had asked the driver to take a breath test for alcohol after she was stopped.  The trooper believed she had failed the field sobriety tests and she agreed to take a breath test.  After blowing in 3 times the machine continued to show “insufficient sample.”  Even though the driver had been cooperative, the trooper declared she was refusing to take a breath test.  At court the trial court found she refused and that decision was upheld by the Indiana Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court in Hurley v. State of Indiana in a unanimous decision reversed the lower courts and held that the trooper had to follow the rules requiring other options including offering for her to test again after the insufficient sample. The court stated, “The trooper was required to administer a second test on this record because Hurley did not clearly manifest an unwillingness to take it.”  The court went on to point out that this is not the case where a person puffs their cheeks and pretends to blow, which could result in a valid finding of refusal.

Under Indiana law any person driving a motor vehicle on the roads has impliedly consented to take a test for drugs or alcohol in their system if a police officer has probable cause to believe they are currently operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or other drugs pursuant to I.C. 9-30-6-9.  If you refuse to take the test your driver’s license may be suspended for a period of one (1) year in addition to any suspension you receive if convicted of the underlying operating under the influence charge.
