The Future of Minnesota's DWI Law: Admitting that the Supreme Court Could Be Ready to "Change the Legal Landscape" for DWIs

Posted On February 14, 2013 by Daniel Koewler

Since the beginning of February, we've been spending some time blogging about the Missouri v. McNeely case and how we expect it will impact both pending DWI cases and future DWI cases.

But that's just our opinion, our analysis. While there are some pour souls who simply refuse to believe that the McNeely decision could possibly impact Minnesota law, we understand how important this case could be. But our opinions aren't the ones that matter: what about opinions from those who will actually weigh the impact of this case - namely, judges?

We recently obtained this order from a district court judge that demonstrates just how smart our judiciary really is. This judge isn't throwing out our client's case (yet); this isn't a ruling on the merits of the action. But it is a very well-worded, well-thought out, order that recognizes the obvious: unless you are burying your head in the sand, there is no denying that McNeely has the potential to revolutionize the practice of DWI law . . . and good defense attorneys will make sure that they're protecting all of their current client's rights before the decision is released.
