Why Not Just Get Rid Of The Sixth Amendment While You’re At It ?by Doug Mataconis
A state legislator in Tennessee opens a new front in the drunk driving wars:
Defense attorneys would be banned from advertising their expertise with drunken driving cases under a bill advancing in the Senate.
Sen. Rosalind Kurita, a Clarksville Democrat, successfully added the provision to a bill that would create an online registry of repeat DUI offenders in Tennessee.
Kurita says officials have a hard enough time convicting drunken drivers without lawyers advertising their expertise in the field and offering discounts to DUI defendants.
Hey, Senator Kurita, why not just go all the way and get right of those pesky trials altogether ?
