Minnesota Supreme Court Says Turn Over Source Codes
Posted on Feb 20, 2010
The Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that the source codes for breath testing machines must be turned over to the defense in certain instances. This ruling could have implications beyond Minnesota, setting the stage for attorneys in other states to demand these codes.
This could be important to a DUI defense, if the programming wasn't correct, and, as a result, the breath testing machines were not accurately measuring blood alcohol content.
