Minnesota Breathalyzer Case Gets More Complicated

Last month, I wrote about a case where a Minnesota man asked for the source code to the breathalyzer in his DUI case. Things have gotten slightly more complicated-- more after the jump.

Article here.

Best quote from the article:

...the Minnesota Supreme Court in late July concluded that language in the contract between the device's manufacturer, Kentucky-based CMI, and the state indicates the source code belongs by extension to Minnesota. The justices suggested the state must do whatever it takes to enforce that contract, even if it means, for example, suing CMI.
(emphasis mine)
