DUI attorney Mike Nichols of East Lansing just fought a drunk driving case in Gratiot County. "The prosecutor sought the costs of prosecution. We preserved an argument that the costs of prosecution statute is unconstitutional," says Nichols. He added "you cannot appeal the things you do not challenge."

In this 2 day trial, the prosecutor failed to turn over video that existed of the accused. Nichols says "she amazingly tried to rationalize it by saying we sent our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Michigan State Police instead of the local post. Obviously, she did not check the policies with MSP because every FOIA goes through their FOIA unit in Lansing. They do not need to make this so hard"
