Vancouver Criminal Lawyer: Meghan Forhan

Client Appealing IRP Administrative Hearing Loss

The Facts:

Client issued a 90 day Immediate Roadside Prohibition [IRP] hearing for refusing to provide a breath sample. The client lost at the IRP hearing.

Meghan Forhan appealed the loss by way of a Judicial Review in BC Supreme Court. Meghan argued that the IRP adjudicator wrongly dismissed the client’s argument that the police officer was not required to attach a certificate of calibration for the ASD.

The Result:

Judicial Review won. IRP conviction quashed and a new IRP hearing ordered.
