State v. Marquez

In a stunning 4-3 decision, the New Jersey Supreme Court, reversing the state appellate court, ruled this morning in State v. Marquez that a person who has been arrested for drunk driving has the right to be informed of the obligation to submit to a breath test in the language he speaks. In order to implement the new procedures for those who speak foreign languages, the Court will rely upon the efforts of the Attorney General and the Motor Vehicle Commission to provide a means of having paragraph 36 available in a wide variety of foreign languages spoken in our state.
