You have undoubtedly noticed that when alcohol is consumed at social events, the effects of alcohol vary from person to person. You might have a friend who feels the effects after a single drink, while another might seem utterly unaffected by two or three. To understand how each individual is affected by alcohol, look at the interplay of factors and circumstances such as gender, weight, pace at which the alcohol is consumed, and so on. They help to determine impairment, as well as the likelihood of a DUI arrest. Factors Determining Impairment Levels Gender: in general, alcohol affects women…
Back in July, we noted that the number of people arrested on suspicion of drinking and driving during the Independence Day holiday was down sharply compared with 2019. At the time, the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety reported just 193 DUI arrests over the holiday weekend. In 2019, law enforcement made 512 arrests. We suggested then (https://www.scottsdale-duilawyer.com/blog/2020/07/arizona-dui-arrests-were-dramatically-down-over-july-4th-weekend/) that the COVID-19 pandemic was a big factor in reducing arrests. With fewer people out celebrating, there were fewer allegedly drunk drivers for police and state troopers to pull over. New Holiday, the Same Story Now, the next major holiday weekend has…

Notwithstanding, based on each justice’s jurisprudence, one can gain a general sense of their effectiveness, influence, and impact on the Court and the rule of law. The following rankings, which are admittedly subjective and unscientific, are predicated on the following factors: (1) the influence, if…

When the Supreme Court heard argument recently in Torres v. Madrid, the Justices considered a wide range of interpretive approaches that might help them interpret the meaning of a Fourth Amendment seizure.[1] In a heated discussion of stare decisis, the Justices debated how closely they should hew to their prior decision in California v. Hodari D.,[2] which seemed to hold that officers seize a suspect at the moment they apply physical force to him, whether they successfully subdue him or not. The Justices then debated both the import and meaning of founding-era cases that involved seizures through physical…
