Recent cases:

3.Alcotest Results Admissible Despite Failure of State To Produce Machines Data.State v. Macri. Unreported A-0255-13T4

The Law Divisionsuppressed the evidence of the results of defendants Alcotest breath examination. The Appellate Division reversed. .Although DWI defendants have the right to obtain all data about the Alcotest machines used to test them, the states failure to provide the data due to a technical glitch is not cause to suppress machine readings, a New Jersey appeals court says. The loss of data caused by the failure of a machines motherboard did not amount to a denial of due process, since there was no showing of bad faith by the state and the lost data was only potentially useful. SourceDaily Briefing - 03/17/2014

4. DWI dismissed where state misplaced file for 16 months

State v. Downs, App. Div.A-1688-12T4Defendant appeals the Law Division order affirming the municipal courts denial of his motion to dismiss outstanding charges on speedy trial grounds. Defendant entered a conditional plea to driving while intoxicated (DWI), reserving his right to pursue this appeal. Defendant actively attempted to bring this matter to an end. He requested discovery around the time the indictable charge against him was dismissed, to no avail. Despite his best efforts to obtain discovery, he was put off and shuttled between the Hamilton Township Police Department (HTPD) and the Mercer County Prosecutors Office. Because the file could not be located, however, discovery was not provided until some sixteen months later. The Supreme Court decided State v. Cahill after the Law Divisions decision in this case. In Cahill, the Supreme Court noted that [once a defendant asserts a violation of his right to a speedy trial, the government is required to identify the reason for the delay. Misplacing a DWI file is not an adequate reason for a sixteen-month delay. The appellate panel reverses the finding of the Law Division judge and dismisses the matter.
