Do I have a legal right to request a retest of a positive drug screen completed by CPS?
CPS has claimed that this test showed positive but in my counseling group nothing showed positive. I requested a retest, the caseworkers supervisor said in front of me to retest the screen. Three weeks later the caseworker told me they wont be retesting it and will submit it to the court as a positive drug screen. If I request a retest are they legally obligated to do it?
You need to consult with your attorney and decide if you need to file a motion with the judge to order a retesting.

Does "falsifying display of plates" count as a legal stance of suspicion especially if the same officer has cited one before?
I owned a vehicle, and the title was a lost title, so I was unable to register it, because of this, I simply used my old plates from a previous vehicle I owned. I was cited multiple time for false display of plates by the same officer, I then proceeded to try and find the title through the auction that sold the vehicle. Weeks later I was pulled over for the display of plates again, forced to wait for a k9 unit, and slapped with an OWI/DUI 2nd. Would a false display of plates give an officer reasonable cause for suspicion, and would a lawyer be able to reopen this case based on the recent ruling of the Supreme Court that forcing one to wait for a k9 unit is a violation of the 4th amendment?
There was recent Supreme Court case law on this question, I believe. You would realistically need an attorney to help...
