Minnesota's DWI Forfeiture Law Struck Down As Unconstitutional

Today, the Minnesota Court of Appeals struck down a significant portion of Minnesota's DWI Vehicle-Forfeiture Law as unconstitutional, specifically concluding that it violates the due process rights of drivers and innocent owners alike. In cases like these, justice delayed really does mean that justice is denied. Read More

Breath Test Results That Don't Add Up Equal a Big Problem For Minnesota

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) trains its employees to testify in court that the DataMaster DMT (used in the majority of DWI arrests in Minnesota) is designed to give drivers the "benefit of the doubt." They "truncate" the breath test results, they take the "lower" of two breath samples, they have all sorts of "filters" to screen out false positive tests. Think of how absurd would it be if the machine keeps measuring someone's breath, and keeps getting a result that is below Read More

Roadmap to Victory: Solving a Longstanding Problem

At the end of 2017 we started releasing some of the "under wraps" victories we had for our clients last year. And because the Vikings just keep winning, we thought it would be fun to compare these wins to the current rise of the Super Bowl contender Minnesota Vikings. Read More

Roadmap to Victory: When Success Is Hiding In Plain Sight

We teased everyone last week that we were going to release some of the "under wraps" victories we've had for our clients over 2017. And because the Vikings are currently charging straight towards a first-round playoff bye, we thought it would be fun to compare these wins to the current rise of the soon-to-be-world-champion Minnesota Vikings.

Roadmap to Victory: Noticing When Something Is Missing

We teased everyone last week that we were going to release some of the "under wraps" victories we've had for our clients over 2017. And because we're also currently suffering from a bad case of drinking the purple Kool-Aid, we thought it would be fun to compare these wins to the current rise of the soon-to-be-world-champion Minnesota Vikings.

Roadmap to Victory (2017 in Review)

Getting a good result in a DWI case often involves going far beyond what most attorneys even consider as a defense. We've got a reputation for pioneering new defenses, which is a huge benefit to our clients. For the last few weeks in December, we're going to reveal some of the top defenses we've used to win cases for our clients -- how we were getting Ignition Interlock cases dismissed, how we can get felony DWI's dismissed, and how we are getting forfeited vehicles returned to our clients.

Supreme Court Oral Arguments II: Electric Boogaloo

On October 4, we held two arguments before the Minnesota Supreme Court, addressing the impact that Minnesota's unconstitutional Implied Consent Law will have on the drivers who either refused to submit to blood or urine tests, or agreed to those tests after being threatened with the crime of refusal. We posted a video of the first oral argument earlier -- here's the second one. Read More

Ramsay Law Firm At The Minnesota Supreme Court

While Tom Petty has moved on to a better place (and may he rest in peace) his lyrics are going to be with us forever. That includes the old gem "The Waiting Is The Hardest Part." And he was right . . . even if he wasn't exactly talking about "waiting" for a Supreme Court decision. Read More

Minnesota's DWI Forfeiture Law Ruled Unconstitutional

It's an argument that is picking up steam: whether Minnesota's practice of seizing vehicles involved in DWI cases for forfeiture is constitutional. We recently convinced a district court judge to return our client's forfeited vehicle, based on the argument that the whole statute violates the Due Process clause of our Constitution. Because it does. Read More

How the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Betrayed Our Trust

Privacy rights are always a hot topic in America, a country founded on the idea of freedom and individuality. One topic that's been close to our heart since early last year is the Department of Public Safety's attempt to use Minnesota's Ignition Interlock Program to camouflage a widespread, secret program of surveillance -- putting the privacy of tens of thousands of Minnesotans at risk. Today, we sued them over it. Read More

More Than One Way To Skin A Cat

When looking at a DWI case, defense attorneys are looking for a path to victory. How can we get the test suppressed? How can we beat the test result? Were constitutional rights violated? These are just some of the “paths” attorney’s will consider in forming their defense. In many cases, simply finding one valid path will result in outright victory. Read More

2016 Year in Review

This is not being melodramatic, the events of the past year are unique and their affects will be felt, and litigated about, for years to come. Below are the nine most notable events of 2016: Read More
