Pakola, Esq., 60 Dutch Hill Road Suite 8, Orangeburg, New York (845) A new client walks into your office. He is charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in a local justice court, but has a New Jersey driver s license. Given the facts of his case, you advise him that you believe the prosecution will eventually offer him a plea to Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI). You further advise him that if he pleads to a DWAI, the sentence will include a ninety day suspension of his New York driving privileges. He looks you in the eye and says, I don t care about my New York driving privileges. I live and work in New Jersey. What I really want to know is what will happen to my New Jersey license? Which of the following is the best answer?: (A) (B) (C) Don t worry about it, everything will be alright. Your offense happened in New York, and the New York court has no authority to do anything to your New Jersey driving privileges. I only practice in New York. You should consult a New Jersey attorney to discuss the possible implications to your New Jersey license. If you plead guilty to a DWI offense, or are convicted after trial, New York is obligated under an inter-state agreement with New Jersey to forward this information to New Jersey. Further, under New Jersey law, New Jersey will impose civil penalties to include fines and license suspension, as if the offense happened in New Jersey. In fact, all of these answers have some truth to them, as I will explain below, but (A) is misleading, and (B) although in general good and practical advice doesn t provide enough information to the client. Because Rockland County borders New Jersey, and is relatively close to Pennsylvania and Connecticut, it is likely that those of us who handle DWI and traffic offenses will encounter questions like this on a fairly frequent basis. In advising on interstate driving issues, there are only four simple points to remember. First, in general, a valid drivers license in good standing in any state allows a driver to drive in all other states. Second, only the state that issued the license can suspend or revoke it. For this reason, a New York court does not have authority to take a New Jersey driver s license, or to suspend a New Jersey license holder s out-of-state driving privileges (because of this, answer (A) above is partly right, but it is misleading, since the client should be advised as we will see below that his New Jersey license will likely be affected). However, even though a New York court cannot suspend a New Jersey license holder s driving privileges outside of New York, the court does have authority to suspend or revoke driving privileges within New York. In Vanderminden v. Tarantino, 60 AD3d 55 [3d Dep t 2009], appeal denied, 12 NY3d 708 [2009], the Court held that, although not clearly stated in the statute, the so-called prompt suspension law (VTL 1193(2)(e)(7)) applies to out-of-state licensed drivers. Further, according to the VTL: Whenever a non-resident is convicted of any violation which would require the revocation or suspension of a license if the person so convicted or adjudicated was the holder of a license issued by the commissioner, such non-resident s privilege of operating a motor vehicle in this state shall be revoked or suspended, and such non-resident s privilege of operation within this state of any motor vehicle owned by such person as if such non-resident or unlicensed person was the holder of a license issued by the commissioner. (VTL 510(2)(c)). Continued on Page 2. ALL ADVERTISEMENTS AND ARTICLES MUST REVIEWED BY THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE FOR CONTENT.

2 V O L U M E 4 P A G E 2 ARTICLE OF INTEREST... The third point to remember relating to interstate license issues is that New York is a signatory of the Driver License Compact (DLC). The DLC is an inter-state agreement that has been codified in New York as VTL 516. The National Center for Interstate Compacts provides a list of all signatories, the year each state entered into the compact, as well as the relevant citation for each state s enabling legislation (http://apps.csg.org/ncic/compact.aspx?id=56). Incidentally, New Jersey is a party to the compact (N.J.S.A. 39:5D-1, et seq.). Of particular interest for our client is the fact that according to to the DLC, The licensing authority of a party state shall report each conviction of a person from another party state occurring within its jurisdiction to the licensing authority of the home state of the licensee (VTL 516, Art. III). Fourth, under the DLC, (a) The licensing authority in the home state, for the purposes of suspension, revocation or limitation of the license to operate a motor vehicle, shall give the same effect to the conduct reported, pursuant to article III of this compact, as it would if such conduct had occurred in the home state, in the case of convictions for: (1) Manslaughter or negligent homicide resulting from the operation of a motor vehicle; (2) Driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or a narcotic drug, or under the influence of any other drug to a degree which renders the driver incapable of safely driving a motor vehicle; (3) Any felony in the commission of which a motor vehicle is used; (4) Failure to stop and render aid in the event of a motor vehicle accident resulting in the death or personal injury of another. (b) If the laws of a party state do not provide for offenses or violations denominated or described in precisely the words employed in subdivision (a) of this article, such party state shall construe the denominations and descriptions appearing in subdivision (a) hereof as being applicable to and identifying those offenses or violations of a substantially similar nature and the laws of such party state shall contain such provisions as may be necessary to ensure that full force and effect is given to this article. (VTL 516, Art. IV). Quite simply, this means that our client will be sanctioned in New York, but will also face the civil penalties of his or her home state also, to include fines and suspension or revocation of his or her driver s license. Needless to say, most clients are upset by this and believe that it is inappropriate, but it is perfectly legal, and will almost definitely occur (I ve heard anecdotally that the DMV will occasionally drop the ball and not notify the home state, but on every occasion where I have checked back with former clients, they have informed me that their home state eventually did suspend or revoke their license). By the way, all of these rules also apply to a New York driver who is convicted of a DWI-type offense in another state (see, VTL 516, Articles III and IV). Also, interestingly, New York has similar reciprocal agreements with the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec (VTL 516-a). The New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) webpage clearly states the New York consequences of an out-of-state violation: If you are 21 years of age or older when you commit an alcohol or drug related driving violation in any other state or the provinces of Ontario and Quebec in Canada and you are convicted of the violation, your New York State driver license will be revoked for at least 90 days. If you are under the age of 21 when you commit an alcohol or drug related driving violation that occurs out-ofstate and you are convicted of the violation, your New York State driver license will be revoked for at least one year. If you have any prior alcohol or drug related driving conviction, your license will be revoked for at least one year or until the age of 21, whichever is longer. (DMV Webpage at So in the end, to answer the client s question posed at the beginning of this article, I would respond with something like the following: It is true that the New York court has no authority to do anything to your New Jersey driving privileges. However, unfortunately for you, New York has signed an interstate agreement with New Jersey, which requires the New York DMV, when your case is disposed of, to forward the information related to your conviction to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC). The MVC will treat the offense as if it occurred in New Jersey and will assess fines and suspend or revoke your license accordingly. Since I am not licensed to practice in New Jersey, I am limited in how I can assist this client after the New York case is disposed of, but the New Jersey MVC has a fairly good webpage (http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/violations/dui.htm) that summarizes the fines and penalties in New Jersey for driving under the influence (DUI), which is how New Jersey refers to these offenses, as opposed to New York s DWI. In my practice, I will usually pull up the webpage, make a copy of it for the client, and let him know that these are the sanctions he will likely face when the MVC is notified of the New York offense. If the client has more specific questions about New Jersey law, or how to challenge the New Jersey suspension, I will usually conclude the meeting by referring the client to a New Jersey attorney.

A PLAN FOR NEW MEMBERSHIP The question of value vs. cost of membership always rattles around in my mind when deciding whether to join or continue membership in an organization. Should I pass on it or write a check? I suspect we all do it and there are many lawyers in Rockland County who pass on it when it comes to joining the Rockland County Bar Association. Those lawyers, apparently, do not see the value of membership. (According to data I ve seen, our membership represents less than one-quarter of all lawyers who live or practice in Rockland County.) It seems to me that we need to grow our membership in order to be a more vibrant and worthwhile organization. To meet our objectives going forward and to pay for the quality and quantity of the programs we want, we need a growing membership with new people with new ideas. When our Bar Association was formed in 1893 to address the needs of a small group of lawyers, they saw value in creating a society of legal professionals in Rockland County. Many years later each of us joined because we, too, saw value in affiliation. We belong because when we joined we had a vision of the benefits of membership. The new Membership Committee is in the early stages of planning a marketing strategy to help the three or four lawyers in Rockland who are not affiliated find value in membership. If you have marketing experience or feel you can contribute in some other way, please join us. Ed Kallen, Chair /

4 V O L U M E 4 P A G E 4 COMMERCIAL LITIGATION ISSUES OF INTEREST Submitted by Paul Savad, Esq. Chair, Commercial and Corporate Law Committee; Joseph Churgin, Esq., and Susan Cooper, Esq., of SAVAD CHURGIN, Attorneys at Law Your client had a written retainer agreement with an accounting firm for it to provide forensic accounting services to your client s prior attorneys for your client s lawsuit seeking distributions by real estate holding companies in which your client has an interest. The retainer agreement provided, among other things, that all reports, communications and work product were intended to be protected under the attorney work product privilege. After you took over the case, the accountants continued to perform services in the same manner as they had for your client s prior attorneys. As part of discovery, you prepared a privilege log identifying selected relevant, privileged communications with the accountants. The defendants then moved to compel production of the communications listed on your privilege log. An in-camera inspection by a JHO has been ordered. Will you succeed in protecting all of the communications with the accountants? The answer is no. In Barry v. Clermont York Associates LLC, /2012, NYLJ , at *1 (Sup. Ct. N.Y. Co. January 6, 2015), the plaintiff hired the law firm of O Shea Partners LLP in anticipation of suing to recover distributions alleged to have been improperly withheld from several real estate holding companies in which the plaintiff had an interest. The plaintiff also hired a forensic accounting firm, which signed an agreement with the plaintiff to provide forensic accounting services, opinion of value, opinion on accounting aspects of litigation matters, litigation consulting and other services required in, the referenced litigation. All professional services were to be directed by the law firm of O Shea with all reports, communications, and work product to be submitted to O Shea. The agreement provided that the accounting firm s work product was intended to be protected under attorney work product privilege, and all work performed would be confidential. After O Shea ceased representing the plaintiff, the accountants continued to request information pertaining to the books and records relevant to plaintiff s claims. The new attorneys had no written agreement with the accounting firm. During discovery, privilege logs were exchanged. The defendants moved to compel production of documents on the plaintiff s privilege log, including communications with the plaintiff s forensic accounting firm. The motion was referred to a JHO, who conducted an in-camera inspection of the disputed documents, and made recommendations. The plaintiff then moved to confirm in part and deny in part the JHO s report. The Court began by noting the general rule that the attorney-client privilege shields confidential communications between an attorney and his client made during the course of a professional relationship for the purpose of facilitating the rendition of legal services, citing Spectrum Sys. Int l Corp. v. Chem. Bank, 78 NY2d 371 (1999), and CPLR Although the privilege is typically destroyed by the presence of third parties, the Court noted the exception where counsel needs assistance from other experts to facilitate the rendition of legal services, citing United States v. Kovel, 296 F2d 918 (2d Cir 1961). To qualify for the Kovel exception, the party asserting privilege must produce contemporaneous proof of a Kovel agreement, such as a separate retention agreement or separate billing. Since only plaintiff s first attorney, Shea, had a Kovel agreement, the Court ruled that the communications with the accounting firm while Shea represented the plaintiff were privileged, but communications after Shea s termination were not. Meanwhile, unrelated to the plaintiff s accounting firm issues, the plaintiff moved for production of certain documents on the defendants privilege log, including relevant communications with the attorneys for one of the defendants. The communications with the defendant s attorneys were held to be privileged, except those communications that contained colorful language, i.e. name -calling. The Court reasoned that derisive comments by the individual defendant were not communications made for the purpose of obtaining legal advice. Continued on Page 5..

5 VOLUME 4 PAGE 5 ARTICLE OF INTEREST CONTINUED.. The lesson? When using experts and other agents to assist you in litigation, (whether retained by your client or by you), make sure the expert or other agent signs an agreement, before commencing services, clearly providing that the retention is for services to be provided to you in connection with the specified litigation. This is necessary for the attorney-client privilege to shield confidential communications between the expert and the attorney.
