Intoxilyzer 5000 Breath Tests, Challenging The Source Code
In Minnesota, successful prosecution of a DWI or DUI case normally is dependent on the ability of the state prosecutor to prove the defendant in question failed the blood alcohol concentration test. Since the Intoxilyzer was introduced in Minnesota, defendants have sought court orders to inspect the computer or source code in the state’s breath test.
Despite the software needing at least 6 different revisions (and many people having their revoked licenses reinstated) the State of Minnesota had not analyzed the software source code. The State of Minnesota has claimed they cannot analyze the software source code to provide validity of the breath test because the manufacturer of the Intoxilyzer 5000 breath test machine will not release the source code due to trade secrets. The State has sued the manufacturer in federal courts since.
In a May 2009 ruling between the State of Minnesota v. Timothy Arlen Brunner, defendants accused of testing at or above 0.08 on an Intoxilyzer 5000 breath test machine may motion for discovery of the machines source code to challenge a DWI charge.
