DWI Breath Test Intoxilyzer Source Code Documents: State v. Brunner, Minnesota Supreme Court (2009)

Posted On May 05, 2009 by Charles Ramsay

I have previously posted an index of the documents my firm submits in each source code case. Now that the Minnesota Supreme Court has ruled in State v. Brunner, upholding a trial court's ruling to suppress an Intoxilyzer 5000 breath test result, other attorneys are contacting me for the documents used in that case.

I have posted a number of the Intoxilyzer Breath Test documents on my website.

The Supreme Court held the standard for discovery of the source code is that a driver must show the software is merely related to the defendant's guilty or innocence. Brunner submitted only two substantive documents, which met that standard.

Here are links to the documents Attorney Derek Patrin used in State v. Brunner.
