Recently the United States Supreme Court issued a decision that should have, and is being tested, a great impact on most Marin County traffic cases.  The decision, BULLCOMING V NEW MEXICO, placed a requirement on the Prosecution to bring in witnesses even for foundational introduction of evidence.  

In the traffic arena, this should be applied in all Marin County speeding cases and Marin County red light camera cases.  The idea is that they must bring in witnessses if they are using TESTIMONIAL HEARSAY.  This is a great new tool for fighting traffic cases in Marin County.
