Under Oath, Under The Influence

The Colorado Presiding Disciplinary Judge approved a 120 day consent suspension of an attorney. The attorney admitted that he had failed to provide competent representation to a criminal client. To make matters worse, the attorney further admitted that he had "testified while intoxicated" in the proceeding exploring his ineffective assistance.

I wonder what the blood alcohol content is for testifying while intoxicated. (Mike Frisch)
