Intoxilyzer Source Code Update

On December 1, 2011, the Minnesota Supreme Court held oral arguments on the Intoxilyzer 5000 Source Code issue regarding the software used in Minnesota DWI breath tests.  This appeal is the THIRD time the Supreme Court has considered the Intoxilyzer Source Code in the last 6 years!

As a result of the State’s decision to continue using faulty breath testing equipment, over 4000 breath test DWI cases are in limbo, including DWI criminal cases and civil implied consent cases involving the revocation of a driver’s license.
