Q: How can I get my DUI dropped when there is a urinalysis from the hospital showing I'm not under the influence?

I have three breathlyzers and two urinalysis and the cop was screaming acting erratically because of the negative results. He asked for a third sample and it didn't seem right. I have neurological issues from an aneurysm and I'm very anxious ask the time from past trauma.

If indeed there is nothing in your blood or urine tests given to you at the hospital, and you blew .000 on the breath machine, then a motion to dismiss/suppress should be filed. Either way it seems like you might have a very defendable case! Good Luck!

Q: If a sitting judge presided over a case that was completely corrupt and was charged with corruption a few years later

Is it possible to sue the district attorneys office?

The case I refer to is the state vs Francisco Munoz, 1972. I have lived with this injustice for over 50 years. Thanks for your time and effort.

It would seem that the Statute of Limitations has most likely passed. Moreover, the State Attorney's office is probably the wrong party to implicate in any type of lawsuit with the facts that you have mentioned. Maybe the correct Defendant in this case is the Judge himself.
