For this assignment, you’ll be completing a subpoena and hearing request. Again, this is the sort of task you might actually do at a law firm.
Your supervising attorney has just given you the following assignment:
Jose Cuervo has come into the office with a serious matter. He was involved in a car accident and hit a pole. He was arrested for a DUI and the cop said he refused to submit to a breathalyzer. His license was suspended for one year since he did not take the breathalyzer. Jose said he wasn’t drinking and the empty whiskey bottles in the back seat belonged to his brother Jack D. He said he passed out when he hit the pole and woke up in the ambulance and was never asked to take a breathalyzer test. He drives for his job and needs the suspension lifted.
Your employer, Iam Shark, attorney at law, has asked you to help prepare his case for an administrative hearing at the Arizona Department of Transportation. He wants you to prepare a hearing request and a subpoena. The attorney wants to subpoena the records from the ambulance company that will show Jose was passed out until he was in the ambulance.
The Arizona Department of Transportation website (Links to an external site.) contains the necessary hearing request and subpoena forms (see the FAQ tab to obtain the forms.)
You have spoken to the client and have the following information:
