Refusal Hearing

Sullivan & Brill, LLP presently represents an officer with the NYPD who was charged with Driving while Intoxicated (DWI). After their client was arrested, he refused to take the Breathalyzer Test. Today, Attorney Steven Brill represented the client at a New York DMV refusal hearing. Mr. Brill argued that the officer who arrested the client had failed to state a “reasonable cause” they stopped and pulled over the client. In other words, there was no evidence that the client engaged in any criminal behavior prior to the car stop. Without that evidence, the Administrative Law Judge at DMV was unable to prove that there was any “reasonable cause” to stop the client. As a result, DMV case against the client was closed, and the client's New York State driver's license privileges were restored.
