Bulletin: Massachusetts: Bar Association asks for a review of tainted breathalyzer tests by an independent invesigator;

Citing the suspension of breathalyzer tests by some county prosecutors, the Massachusetts Bar Association on Tuesday asked Attorney General Maura Healey to appoint an independent investigator to conduct a review of the use of the machines in drunk driving cases.  "We believe drunk driving is a very serious problem, however convictions need to be based on reliable and accurate evidence. The constitutional right to a fair trial has to be paramount," association chief operating officer Martin Healy wrote in a letter to Healey.
