Today, the Minnesota Supreme Court issued the much anticipated decision in State v. Brooks, which deals with the admissibility of DWI blood, breath and urine test results in Minnesota. You can read the entire decision here.

For those of you anxious to just cut to the chase, without reading the entire decision, here's the Court's own summary of what the Brooks decision says:

When, based on the totality of the circumstances, appellant consented to the search, police did not need a warrant to search appellant's blood or urine.


Now go ahead and read the whole decision, but don't forget to check back here soon - we'll be posting our interpretation and first impressions of the decision very shortly.
