Advanced Health Care Directives ~ it’s about your family.

Recently I was at a game catching up with friends.  A friend recently died and invariably the subject of advanced health care directives (also called living wills) came up and I shared my “pitch” about how important a living will is. I was talking to 4 people, ranging in age from 30-60, all of whom said that they don’t want extraordinary measures taken, and not one of them has executed a living will.  So I asked them why.  Answers ranged from “just haven’t had time” to “I don’t have an attorney” to “Isn’t it complicated?” Is it Complicated to Have […]

Drugs and Probable Cause Ruling in Delaware

A June 13, 2016 ruling in Delaware’s Court of Common Pleas can have wide implications in future DUI arrests. Judge Carl C. Danberg ruled that the “exceptionally broad” definitions of drugs allows Delaware police officers to establish probable cause for a driving under the influence arrest without identifying the specific substance a person may have used. The ruling followed a defendant’s motion to suppress evidence from a June 2015 arrest. The defendant argued that the arresting Delaware State Police officer could not determine a crime had occurred after the defendant hit another vehicle at an Instate 95 toll.
