Attorney Michelle Behan Argues DUI Case Before Arizona Supreme Court

Attorney Michelle Behan Argues DUI Case Before Arizona Supreme Court

On February 7, 2019, Attorney Michelle Behan presented arguments before the Arizona Supreme Court in a case involving a DUI arrest. In the case of Diaz v. Hon. Bernini, et al., Ms. Behan argued on behalf of a woman arrested and charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in Tuscon.

This case involved the question of whether requests by police officers to perform testing of a driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) following a DUI arrest constitutes coercion. The defendant in this case, Ms. Diaz, had been arrested for DUI and was read an admonition by officers stating that drivers who operate a motor vehicle in Arizona give implied consent for BAC testing, and refusal to submit to testing will result in the suspension of a driver’s Arizona driving privileges. While Ms. Diaz agreed to testing, she argued at trial that her consent was not voluntary and asked to have the results of the test suppressed.
