Highlight

A person arrested for DUI has a limited statutory right to consult with an attorney before deciding whether to submit to a chemical test.
If a DUI arrestee asked to take a chemical test makes any mention of a need for an attorney, the arresting officer must assume the arrestee is requesting an opportunity to consult with an attorney.
Defendant's mention of an attorney's name and passing reference to desire to fight DUI charge were not requests to consult with an attorney before taking a chemical test.
The bright-line rule for determining whether an arrestee has invoked the right to consult with an attorney before submitting to a chemical test adopted in Baillie v. Moore, 522 N.W.2d 748, 750 (N.D. 1994), applies in both administrative and criminal proceedings.
