Utah's DUI-metabolite law gets backing from state supreme court

Some of Utah's criminal laws -- especially misdemeanors -- have never been challenged in the state's highest court. Most often, this is because doing so is not cost-effective and takes a great deal of time and effort. That is, until recently. The Utah Supreme Court recently issued a ruling upholding the constitutionality of the state's DUI-metabolite law.

Couples have decisions to make when it comes to child custody

When Utah parents end their relationships, they often spend a considerable amount of time, either together or separately, attempting to make the process less stressful and uncomfortable for their children. Carrying this sentiment into the divorce process could help keep the focus on doing what is best for them both now and post-divorce. When it comes to child custody, parents have numerous decisions to make.

Why are second marriages more likely to end in divorce?

When your first marriage ended, you may have experienced many mixed emotions. Maybe you wrestled with the feeling of never wanting to go through that kind of heartache again, or maybe you decided you simply didn't want to be alone. Whether your second marriage was one you considered carefully or jumped into quickly, you are probably more than disappointed to see it coming to an end.

Will the Utah legislature bend to the will of the ABI on DUI law?

Some laws passed by the Utah legislature go into effect without much more than a whisper while others meet with intense controversy before they are enacted. One such law previously discussed in this blog on March 17 is intended to lower the state's legal blood alcohol limit to .05 from .08 ("Major change is coming to Utah's DUI laws"). Since that time, the American Beverage Institute and others have begun a campaign aimed at getting the legislature to repeal the law even before its Dec. 30, 2018 effective date.
