One of the N.J. State police breath test coordinators was found to have skipped steps in the calibration process which created an unquantifiable uncertainty in the scientific reliability of the Alcotest machine. The N.J. State Supreme Court has just rendered a decision in State of N.J. v. Eileen Cassidy wherein the court adopted the 198 page report of the Special Master issued on May 4, 2018 confirming that in all the cases handled by the breath test coordinator which are applicable to the findings in the decision those defendants may seek to reopen those cases and seek appropriate relief.

We recommend anybody interested contact our office to further discuss these important findings.
