Litigating Traffic Stops Webinar

This webinar, presented by WDA’s Misdemeanor Resource Attorney Magda Baker, will examine ways to seek suppression of evidence that stems from traffic stops. It will include a brief overview of Terry stops in general and cover stops based on police officers’ mistakes of fact, stops based on tips from other drivers, pretext stops and the permissible scope of traffic stops. Finally, Magda will discuss a few specific traffic infractions, such as those related to turns and squealing tires.
