Supreme Court Rules Against Drunk Drivers

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Supreme Court ruled against three suspected drunk drivers who were hoping to examine software used by a breath testing machine to defend themselves.

The decision on Thursday means that Kentucky-based CMI Inc. won’t have to turn over software for its Intoxilyzer 8000.

The justices ruled that the defendants couldn’t subpoena documents from an out-of-state, non-party witness.

The defendants wanted to analyze the software in hopes of proving it inaccurate.
