New Jersey Drug Charges: Dismissed on Appeal

Defendants were stopped at a DWI roadblock at the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee and charged with drug offenses.  We challenged the roadblock as unconstitutional — an intrusion without probable cause on one of the nation’s busiest crossings.

Constitutional roadblocks may be organized to enforce:

  • Border security
  • Drunk driving laws
  • Specific crime control practices

After five days of testimony, a Bergen County judge ruled that the roadblock was unconstitutional.  An appeals court upheld the ruling.
