Ken runs races for different charities. He donates to our local food banks. He shares his knowledge of the Law at seminars for free. He was given the award at the District Dinner at the East Brunswick Lodge.        Each Elk Lodge is encouraged to select a citizen, not necessarily an Elk, who has contributed in a special way to improving the local community. This individual should be someone who has shown leadership in the community; has contributed voluntary service and is recognized as being an all-around good citizen. Recognizing such a person show that the Elks are concerned with building a good community, and demonstrates "Elks Care - Elks Share." After the selection, the Elks honor him or her by presenting the award at a dinner sponsored by the Lodge.              , Edison Citizen of the Year, Edison Elks Lodge, 2017
    • Vercammen wins NJ Law Journal award for individual service to the bar“The Second Annual TWITA Awards”This year’s honorees join a long line—well, a short line, really; more like a hyphen—of previous TWITA award winners whose service to the profession has been extraordinary. By Marc Garfinkle|May 31, 2018 at 09:00 AM     “Thank you for your patience, dear readers. We didn’t forget to announce this year’s TWITA awards last month. We were waiting for the Atlantic City conventions to wrap up before revealing our honorees. You’ll understand why shortly. We at the TWITAs are delighted to have such special honorees this year.   For the uninformed (or if you are my age and forget everything) the coveted TWITA (“That’s What I’m Talking About”) Awards have been awarded each year continuously since 2017, to individuals and organizations whose outstanding work benefits the bar and/or the practice of law. Some past recipients have been hard-working and selfless—making contributions that inspire or empower us, and reminding us what’s best about being a lawyer. Others may have just said nice things about me, contributed handsomely to my foundation, or otherwise caught my fancy. This year’s honorees join a long line—well, a short line, really; more like a hyphen—of previous TWITA award winners whose service to the profession has been extraordinary.   Oh, one detail. Fact checking. We don’t do it. It’s a waste of time. No one seems to care about the truth anymore, statistics can lie, and fact-checkers are always denounced as partisan. We will have none of that at the TWITAs.   There are two categories of TWITA award winners: organizational and individual. We will reveal the organizational winner(s) first. Then, somewhere below, we reveal our surprise individual winner, whose name until then shall remain Ken Vercammen of Edison. Thank you for your patience.  [Note: We eschew the presentation of actual trophies because in addition to being costly dust-collectors, they contain a substance considered dangerous by the State of California. Winners seeking proof of the award should take a selfie posing with a copy of this newspaper. After searching for almost a year, assisted by the antiquated methodology, inadequate information and arbitrary standards that define us, I personally selected a most deserving pair of organizational honorees. Together, we call them, “The Annual Conferences at Atlantic City.” They need no introduction; their sponsors spend boatloads on advertising. They are the annual Boardwalk Seminar of the New Jersey Association for Justice (“the Boardwalk Seminar”) and the Annual Convention of the New Jersey State Bar Association (“the Bar Convention”). These are the two 800-pound gorillas that invade that city each spring, drawing thousands upon thousands of litigators and legislators, mediators and arbitrators, plaintiffs and defendants and every other species of lawyer to convene. Despite the fact that neither honoree is a “conference”—one is a “seminar,” and one is a “convention”—we will call them “conferences,” so as to offend neither, thus avoiding nasty tweets.   Although they seem to compete annually for attendees, sponsors, venues, sunny days and press coverage, both events really pull in the same direction, and they have far more in common than sponsoring mere seminars at the shore. For example, many lawyers, such as I, belong to both groups, because we find them both helpful to our practices. Both groups educate and inform us. They lobby in our interest. They file amicus briefs on our behalf. They have seemingly inexhaustible supplies of top experts ready to share ideas with us. And perhaps their crowning achievements: they both know how to mix partying and professionalism in perfect measure at the shore each year. Although you probably should join these organizations, the conferences are open to member and non-member attorneys, alike.   For that reason, attorneys swarm to Atlantic City in May for continuing education, camaraderie, networking, serendipity, and professional reinvigoration. If you are getting tired of the daily grind and disenchanted with the practice, a few days in AC can give you new ideas and insights, fresh contacts and better practices going forward. Your career can be upgraded almost overnight if you take full advantage of the offerings. Most lawyers choose to attend one or the other of these events each year; some alternate the years; some attend both. Just who are these lucky honorees? The New Jersey State Bar Association is a voluntary membership organization whose (abbreviated) stated mission is:   To serve, protect, foster and promote the personal and professional interests of its members. To promote access to the justice system, fairness in its administration, and the independence and integrity of the judicial branch. To foster professionalism and pride in the profession. To provide educational opportunities to New Jersey attorneys. To enhance the quality of legal services and the practice of law. To provide education to the New Jersey public to enhance awareness of the legal profession and legal system.   To those ends, their Annual Convention included 400 speakers, 100 seminars and 100 sponsors, all dedicated to helping lawyers and improving lawyering. The NJSBA has lofty goals, but they do a terrific job of accomplishing their mission.   The New Jersey Association for Justice (NJAJ) (formerly ATLA-NJ, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America) is the other 800-pound gorilla. It is a glowing example of lawyers helping lawyers. Their membership is a Who’s Who of excellent trial lawyers who want to “give back” to the profession. The NJAJ has a great list-serve, characterized by top attorneys giving valuable advice freely and frequently. The best trial lawyers in New Jersey belong to the Association for Justice, and you will find them at the Boardwalk Seminar, teaching and learning. Thanks to them, the Boardwalk Seminar offers litigators a smorgasbord of topics from basic information to sophisticated analyses, from yesterday’s decisions to tomorrow’s techniques.   Attending one (or both) of these Atlantic City extravaganzas is rejuvenating. You won’t hear people talking about how they can’t wait to leave the practice or retire, or how they wish they had studied medicine. To the contrary, the lawyers there still enjoy lawyering, are proud to be lawyers, delighted to be in AC. The air is full of war stories, anecdotes, professional insights and cooperation. All of the experts are top experts, but for once, they are easily approached. At AC, attorneys are never adversaries; we are all colleagues. Camaraderie is born here and relationships are spawned and nourished. Because they give so much for so little in return, and because they are so good at what they do, we are proud to award this year’s organizational TWITA Award to The Conferences at Atlantic City. Now, for our individual honoree, Kenneth Vercammen, a Middlesex County solo with a true general practice, who is entirely unaware of how great his contribution to NJ lawyering has been. If you’re not sure whether you’ve ever met Ken, then you haven’t. He is a hyper-energized ball of fire who speaks with such speed and intensity that he would have left you wondering how long anyone could sustain that pace. People who know him well say that Kenny’s been like that his whole life. In fact, as a distance runner at the University of Scranton, where he set a record for the half-mile, the judges were unable to record his speed—so they recorded his muzzle velocity at the starting line.   If you don’t know Ken, but you know his name, that’s probably because your research once caused you to look up a statute online, and it led you to Kenny’s website. It happens all the time. Ken Vercammen is the undisputed master of SEO (search engine optimization) for lawyers, in part because of his NJLaws.com web address, but mostly because he is immersed in the law. He teaches, he lectures, he writes. He will share his SEO expertise with colleagues who ask, but that information alone will not place them ahead of him on Google. While his marketing ingenuity has made him a legend, his creativity and selflessness have made him a TWITA hero. He hosts a party at the shore each July, charging as admission canned and packaged food offerings which he then donates to the needy. He gives out cards to his clients with instructions on what to do or say if they are arrested. He organizes and participates in foot races to benefit worthy causes. You would be hard-pressed to find a successful marketing strategy that Ken has not pioneered or refined.      Ken is inhumanly productive. He lectures extensively on the county, state and national levels. His articles and books have been published by the ABA, the New Jersey Law Journal, the New Jersey Lawyer and other legal publications. He is editor-in-chief of the New Jersey Municipal Court Law Review, a past chair of the NJSBA Municipal Court Section, a former municipal public defender and prosecutor, past president of the Middlesex Municipal Prosecutor’s Association, newsletter editor for the ABA, and adjunct professor at Middlesex County College (criminal law and procedure, business law).    By my count, in the past five years Ken has authored of at least 280,000 scholarly articles on legal topics, offered 13,648 hours of CLE lectures, devised 742 new (and ethical) ways to promote a law practice, and still has time to worry about helping his colleagues to improve their practices. Now, That’s What I’m Talking About.      Marc Garfinkle practices in Morristown, focusing exclusively on legal ethics, attorney discipline, bar admission and judicial misconduct. He is also an adjunct professor at Seton Hall University School of Law.

The State bears the burden of proof in a motion to suppress a statement allegedly obtained in violation of the Miranda doctrine. New Jersey requires the higher standard of beyond a reasonable doubt when the court determines if Miranda has not been fully complied with.

Cassidy  (A-58-16; 078390)        The Special Master’s findings are supported by substantial credible evidence in the record, and the Court adopts them. Breath test results produced by Alcotest machines not calibrated using a NIST-traceable thermometer are inadmissible. This opinion calls into question any test result involving a machine the sergeant who handled, including devices used by local police in Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Somerset, and Union counties between 2008 and 2016.  If someone plead guilty to a DWI in Central NJ prior to 2016 where State Trooper Marc Dennis tested the machine, the driver may be able to file a petition for Post Conviction Relief. 20,667 drivers had DWI test using Alcotest machines improperly calibrated by Tpr. Dennis. The Court considered the admissibility of breath test results produced by Alcotest machines not calibrated using a thermometer that produces temperature measurements traceable to the standards set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Marc W. Dennis, a coordinator in the New Jersey State Police’s Alcohol Drug Testing Unit, was tasked with performing the semi-annual calibrations on Alcotest instruments used in Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Somerset, and Union Counties. He is charged with neglecting to take required measurements and having falsely certified that he followed the calibration procedures. Dennis was indicted in 2016 for failing to use a NIST- traceable thermometer to measure the temperature of simulator solutions used to calibrate Alcotest devices. When Dennis was criminally charged, the Attorney General’s Office notified the Administrative Office of the Courts that evidential breath samples from 20,667 people were procured using Alcotest machines calibrated by Dennis.HELD: The Special Master’s findings are supported by substantial credible evidence in the record, and the Court adopts them. Breath test results produced by Alcotest machines not calibrated using a NIST-traceable thermometer are inadmissible. This case is justiciable despite defendant’s passing. The Court will entertain a case that has become moot when the issue is of significant public importance and is likely to recur. The reliability and admissibility of thousands of breath samples, often used as the sole evidence to support a conviction, is of significant public importance. Scientific test results are admissible in a criminal trial only when the technique is shown to be generally accepted as reliable within the relevant scientific community. Chun, 194 N.J. at 91. Although the Court recently adopted the factors identified in Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 509 U.S. 579, 593-95 (1993), and a methodology-based approach for determining scientific reliability in certain areas of civil law, the Court has not altered its adherence to the general acceptance test for reliability in criminal matters. The proponent of the technique has the burden to clearly establish general acceptance and may do so using(1) expert testimony, (2) scientific and legal writings, and (3) judicial opinions. The party proffering the evidence need not show infallibility of the technique nor unanimity of its acceptance in the scientific community. Of the State’s witnesses, the Special Master found only the testimony of Dr. Brettell worthy of substantial weight; he found defendant’s expert credible. The Court defers to and adopts the Special Master’s detailed credibility findings. Based on the credible testimony, the Special Master determined that accurate temperature readings of the simulator solutions are “the foundation upon which the entire calibration process is built.” The Special Master found NIST traceability “essential” to confidence in the Alcotest’s results and that the two Draeger-manufactured probes were not NIST-traceable and were insufficient substitutes for the use of a NIST-traceable thermometer. The Special Master also found it particularly significant that the NIST-traceable thermometer was the only temperature-measuring device used in the calibration process that was independent from the Alcotest and not manufactured and calibrated by Draeger. The Special Master found it “extremely important and persuasive” that current protocol treats the failure to achieve an in- range temperature reading using the NIST-traceable thermometer as an event of sufficient magnitude to abort a calibration. The Special Master reasoned that such facts clearly cut against the State’s argument that the use of the thermometer is an unnecessary redundancy. Further, the Special Master rejected the State’s theory that ten simultaneous failures would need to occur for the certainty of Alcotest results to be compromised, finding instead that the evidence showed that three relatively minor errors could cause undetected miscalibrations. The Special Master determined that the State had not shown that other states’ practices revealed general acceptance of the reliability of Alcotest results without the use of a NIST- traceable thermometer. Because the Special Master’s findings are supported by substantial credible evidence in the record, the Court adopts them. Applying the general acceptance standard to the Special Master’s findings, the Court holds that the State failed to carry its burden and affirms the Special Master’s conclusion. Temperature measurements that are NIST-traceable are generally accepted as reliable by the scientific community. Part of that reliability lies in the fact that the level of uncertainty of each temperature measurement is known. The two Draeger-manufactured probes fail to meet the NIST’s standards and the measure of uncertainty in their temperature readings is unknown. The Court does not accept the State’s contention that the risk of miscalibration is infinitesimal due to the numerous other fail-safes in the calibration procedure. As Dr. Brettell testified, it was that very fear of a laboratory bias that led him to include the NIST- traceable thermometer in the calibration procedure. The Court orders the State to notify all affected defendants of its decision that breath test results produced by Alcotest machines not calibrated using a NIST-traceable thermometer are inadmissible and commends to the State that it require the manual recording of the NIST- traceable readings going forward. Further, the Court lifts the stay on all pending cases so that deliberations may commence on whether and how those cases should proceed. For those cases already decided, affected defendants may now seek appropriate relief. Because the State waited approximately a year to notify the affected defendants, the Court relaxes the five-year time bar, R. 7:10-2(b)(2), in the interests of justice. The Court asks the Director of the Administrative Office of the Courts to monitor these cases and recommend how best to administer them in the event any special measures are needed. Finally, as to defendant Cassidy, the Court exercises its original jurisdiction and vacates her conviction.   Strip search permitted for indictable cases State v Brown__ NJ Super. _ (App. Div. 2018)The panel affirms the trial court's order denying defendant's motion to suppress five bricks of heroin seized from defendant's groin area pursuant to a strip search following defendant's arrest for indictable drug offenses. The panel addressed the strip search statute, N.J.S.A. 2A: 161A-1 to -10, which affords certain protections to persons who are arrested or detained for non-indictable offenses, and whether the Attorney General Guidelines for strip searches extend those protections to persons arrested or detained for crimes. The panel concludes that neither the legislative history nor the plain terms of the statute authorized the Attorney General to promulgate Guidelines to extend the statute's protections to persons detained or arrested for crimes. The panel further concludes that the strip search was justified here by probable cause and reasonable exigent circumstances, thereby satisfying the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution, and Article I, Paragraph 7 of the New Jersey Constitution. (17-06-1207, 3 OK for Rutgers University police officer to stop and arrest a defendant for DWI   State v. GoinesN.J. Super. Law Div. Docket NO. MA-37-2016The state appealed the ruling of a municipal court judge that determined a Rutgers University Police Officer lacked jurisdiction to stop and arrest defendant for DUI. The officer allegedly observed defendant illegally cross a double-yellow line, after which she activated her lights and pulled over defendant in the city of New Brunswick. Defendant was transported to the police station for an Alcotest, which revealed a BAC of 0.14%. Before the municipal court, defendant moved to dismiss the DUI summons for lack of jurisdiction. Defendant cited a memorandum of understanding between Rutgers and New Brunswick that permitted Rutgers police officers to enforce motor vehicle laws on certain streets; because defendant's arrest did not occur on one of those streets, the municipal court judge granted defendant's motion. On appeal, the court reversed the ruling of the municipal court. The court noted that, in isolation, Title 18A appeared to preclude university police officers from enforcing traffic laws off-campus except at the request of municipal authorities. However, the court found that the Motor Vehicle Code also permitted "any law enforcement officer" to arrest someone for DUI. The court noted that this provision had been interpreted to permit municipal police officers to arrest drivers for DUI outside of those officers' territorial jurisdiction. The court interpreted the legislature's use of the term "any law enforcement officer" to mean that the legislature intended to expand the number of officials with authority to arrest drunk drivers. The court therefore held that it was consistent with the statute to give university police jurisdiction to enforce DUI laws. The court read this statute with Title 18A as preventing university police officers from being overtaxed, while not preventing those officers from stopping crimes occurring right before their eyes.

App. Div. Unreported        Plaintiff appealed defendant commission's final decision suspending plaintiff driver's license for 10 years, after plaintiff had pled guilty to DUI in Maryland. At the time of his Maryland conviction, plaintiff had three previous DUI convictions in New Jersey. Plaintiff opposed the suspension of his license, arguing that the length was excessive and challenging the equivalency of his Maryland conviction under New Jersey law. However, without holding an evidentiary hearing the MVC concluded that the Maryland statue for which plaintiff was convicted was substantially similar to the New Jersey statute for purposes of license suspension pursuant to the Interstate Driver License Compact. On appeal, plaintiff argued that his Maryland conviction was not substantially similar to a conviction under New Jersey law because the Maryland statute allowed for conviction with a lower level of impairment than required for conviction in New Jersey.      The court agreed with plaintiff that he was entitled to an evidentiary hearing to establish the equivalency of his Maryland conviction. The court noted that while New Jersey permitted DUI conviction per se, based on a blood test, or by officer observation, Maryland permitted conviction "while under the influence of alcohol", "under the influence of alcohol per se", and "while impaired by alcohol". The court further noted that Maryland defined "impaired by alcohol" as a state less than intoxication where alcohol nonetheless affected one's coordination. Accordingly, the court concluded that further hearing was necessary to determine whether the "while impaired by alcohol" provision of the Maryland DUI statute was substantially similar to the observational provision of the New Jersey DUI statute.
