2. Refusal does not merge into DWI. State v Eckert 410 NJ Super. 389 (App. Div.
A conviction for refusal to submit to a breath examination cannot be merged with
a DWI conviction. Such a plea agreement violated applicable merger principles as
well as the Court's Guidelines for Operation of Plea Agreements in the Municipal
Courts of New Jersey.
3. Alcotest readings do not need to be truncated to four decimals. State v Rivera
411 NJ Super. 492 (App. Div. 2010)
Reviewing defendant's challenge to the admission of Alcotest results relied upon
to support a per se violation of N.J.S.A. 39:4-50, the court rejected a suggested
methodology requiring the State to truncate the intermediate calculations of the
relative and absolute upper tolerance limits when discerning whether the Alcotest
readings obtained were valid. The court concluded the Supreme Court in State v.
Chun 194 N.J. 54, cert. denied, 129 S. Ct. 158, (2008) expressed no preference for
truncating the various interim calculations on Worksheet A, which would have the
resultant effect of lowering the range of tolerance below that approved by the
Court with the concomitant result of falsely increasing the number of invalid Alcotest
results, precluding justifiable prosecutions for per se violations of N.J.S.A. 39:4-50.

5. Kenneth Vercammen, Edison Attorney and John Menzel Esq. were selected as 2010
NJ Super Lawyer in the Criminal Law- DWI section.
Of over 79,00 attorneys in New Jersey, only five were selected as Super Lawyers
in the Criminal Law- DWI category.
HOW SUPER LAWYERS ARE SELECTED
Bar associations and courts across the country have recognized the legitimacy of
the Super Lawyers selection process. Most recently, the New Jersey Supreme Court
upheld the findings of a Special Master assigned by the court to, among other things,
examine the details of our process. In his July 2008 report, the Special Master
lauded our process, stating:
"[The Super Lawyers selection process] is a comprehensive, good-faith and detailed
attempt to produce a list of lawyers that have attained high peer recognition, meet
ethical standards, and have demonstrated some degree of achievement in their field."
"Suffice to say, the selection procedures employed by [Super Lawyers] are very sophisticated,
comprehensive and complex."
"It is absolutely clear from this record that [Super Lawyers does] not permit a
lawyer to buy one's way onto the list, nor is there any requirement for the purchase
of any product for inclusion in the lists or any quid pro quo of any kind or nature
associated with the evaluation and listing of an attorney or in the subsequent advertising
of one's inclusion in the lists."
Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a rigorous, multiphase process. Peer nominations
and evaluations are combined with third party research. Each candidate is evaluated
on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are
made on an annual, state-by-state basis.
The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding
attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for
legal counsel. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in the selection
of a lawyer, we limit the list to attorneys who can be hired and retained by the
public, i.e., lawyers in private practice and Legal Aid attorneys.
The Super Lawyers selection process involves three basic steps: creation of the
candidate pool; evaluation of candidates by the research department; and peer evaluation
by practice area. Only 5 percent of the lawyers in each state or region are named
