Dougherty drugs case dismissed after we objected to the case being dead-docketed

The Defendant was arrested for possessing various drugs with intent to distribute. We began preparing the case for trial and refused to enter a plea. We felt we had a good chance of winning at trial. When the DA tried to dead-docket the case, a procedure we oppose, we filed an objection to the attempt. At a hearing, we prevented the case from being placed on the dead docket, which forced the DA to either take the case to trial or dismiss it. Eventually, the DA dismissed the case.
