Respectfully, Judge, We Disagree
In the May/June issue of the Utah Bar Journal, the Honorable Judge Paul C. Farr authored an article in the “Views from the Bench” section entitled, “Motions to Suppress: Understanding Burdens” wherein advice was offered to defense attorneys in both filing and arguing motions to suppress in criminal cases. Judge Paul C. Farr, Motions to Suppress: Understanding Burdens, 3 Utah Bar Journal 12 (2013). Judge Farr’s observations are well reasoned and shared by many other courts. He is to be commended for voicing his position on these issues. However, there is another perspective that we believe must be presented.
