Case No. 2012-CV-00043
Southwest Judicial District, Dunn County
Harlan Patrick Weir
2013 ND 28826 N.W.2d 912
Oral Argument 12/19/2012

Highlight

The requirement that an officer include his or her observation that a driver's body contained alcohol on the report and notice is basic and mandatory for the Department of Transportation to have authority to suspend the driver's license for refusal to submit to an onsite screening test.
Allowing the Department to infer elements that are basic and mandatory without any factual basis on the report to support the inference slants the law too much toward the Department's convenience.
