As of January 1, 2013, the Marin County Superior Court has changed the way misdemeanor charges including Driving Under The Influence cases are handled. Prior to 1/1/13 all misdemeanor matters were heard in front of a court commissioner in department M of the the historic Marin County Civic Center and cases only went before a judge for motion hearings and for jury trials.
Now, DUI cases are arraigned in department N or at the clerk’s office by attorneys and are then assigned for all purposes to a judge. However, motions to suppress evidence will be calendared to be heard by a commissioner in department M on Friday mornings until the end of March 2013.
If you are arrested for drunk driving, or if you get a traffic ticket in Novato, San Rafael, Sausalito, or anywhere in Marin County call an experienced aggressive traffic ticket and DUI defense attorney for help.
