Middlesex County Bar Association

On Thursday, May 25, 2017, at the Concord District Court Attorney Joseph D. Bernard and Attorney Anne Goldbach discussed Judge Brennan's ruling regarding the challenges to the reliability of the breathalyzer machine used in Massachusetts. Attorney Bernard discussed what was learned from the many experts who testified throughout the hearings challenging the breathalyzer machine. He further discussed the recent developments in the consolidated cases while covering other avenues of attack that attorneys can use to discredit the test results.

In February 2017, Judge Brennan ruled some of the tests results obtained by the Draeger 9510 breathalyzer as presumptively excluded from evidence at trial. The Commonwealth continues to litigate their ability to introduce the results of those tests.
