David Allen - Can a Drunk Driver Change His Mind after Refusing to Provide a Breath Test
Attorney David Allen discusses a case in which a driver accused of drunk driving refused to provide a second breath test. In many states a driver who is detained as result of a preliminary breath test is later given the opportunity to provide a urine sample or a second breath test. These states frequently provide suspension of a driver's license for one year if someone refuses to undergo the second test. In this case the driver accused of drunk driving changed his mind immediately after refusing to provide a second test. The police officer administering the test told him it was too late, he could not change his mind, and he would lose his license for a year. The man appealed and the Iowa Supreme Court eventually decided whether someone could change their mind within it few minutes, or whether they were stuck with the first decision they made.David Allen & Associates helping injured and disabled people throughout the west for 30 years.

A federal appeals court in San Francisco on Tuesday struck down bans on same-sex marriages in Idaho and Nevada, thus establishing a legal precedent that will likely pave the way for same-sex marriages throughout the entire nine-state judicial circuit.
The Supreme Court turned away appeals this week that effectively raised the number of states allowing the practice from 19 to 30. On Tuesday, a federal appeals court rejected bans in Idaho and Nevada, which would become the 31st and 32nd states with same-sex marriage if the ruling is not put on hold for the Supreme Court to consider.
