On January 21st, Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly ran a story titled "Despite Setbacks, DUI Attorney Continues Fight Over Rights Form" which featured Attorney Marin's efforts litigating the Rhode Island DUI rights form.
The article, written by Pat Murphy from RI Lawyers Weekly, begins:
"Matthew T. Marin has been leading the charge of criminal defense attorneys who have challenged the admissibility of breath and other blood alcohol tests in driving under the influence cases based on alleged deficiencies in the rights forms prepared by the Attorney General's Office and used by police throughout the state.
Marin, of Providence, tasted victory in the first case in which a state judge squarely addressed the adequacy of the rights form issued by the state in January 2015. On May 14, District Court Judge William C. Clifton suppressed test results in a DUI case against Marin's client, Mark Zimmerman, finding the form used by Pawtucket police to be “misleading.” Since that ruling, lower court judges have been divided on the issue in a number of unwritten decisions."
