In State v. Bryson, 142 Ohio App.3d 397, 755 N.E.2d 964 (8th Dist. Cuyahoga County 2001), the Eight District Court of Appeals ruled that making a legal turn to avoid a sobriety roadblock would not constitute reasonable and articulable suspicion to justify the police in making an investigatory stop.  Here, the police saw someone turn around rather than go through their checkpoint.  They dispatched an officer to pull him over.  The court found that the officer was not justified in taking such an action.  Among the justifiable reasons that a person...

Trial Attorney Toolkit – Motion in Limine

Image via WikipediaBlack's Law Dictionary defines a motion in limine as "[a] pretrial request that certain inadmissible evidence not be referred to or offered at trial."
