Lara Gressley Quoted In Oc Register Regarding Court Of Appeal Decision Grassi V Superior Court

On December 29, 2021, Lara Gressley was quoted by the Orange County Register regarding the 4th District Court of Appeal decision Grassi v. Superior Court. In Grassi, the 4th District held that persons charged with DUI are not eligible for diversion under Penal Code section 1001.95. This is an issue our firm has been heavily involved in over the last year, including by filing petitions for review in the California Supreme Court, and handling dozens of writs of mandate in the Riverside County Appellate Division. Ms. Gressley was quoted in the OC Register as saying: “The lawmakers knew DUIs would be eligible and they passed the law. They (appellate justices) are on shaky legal ground.”
