State v. Cuevas

Read the case here

Interesting variation on Livingston, based here entirely on a legal argument: does the left turn statute specify where a driver must make a left turn? Or, is it implicit in the statute that a driver must initiate the turn before reaching the center of the intersection?

I haven't read the briefs, but this strikes as an attempt by the Court of Appeals to overrule a largely factually based ruling by the trial judge on the most precarious of legal grounds.
