As a result of the Ananias litigation, the Office of Alcohol Testing created their new eDiscovery Portal where attorneys can access OAT information online.  Please join us as OAT staff members explain the portal and instruct attorneys how to access the information on it.  This is a must training for defense counsel handling alcohol-related offenses.

I hope to see you on the 1st.
