4000 Minnesota drunk driving cases on hold

Nearly 4,000 drunk driving cases in Minnesota are on hold as defense attorneys question the reliability of a certain breathalyzer device. The device in question is the Intoxilyzer 5000EN. Defense attorneys request the source code to check for defects that could have affected the reliability of the test.

Right now Minnesota judges and prosecutors are not able to move through the 4,000 cases in nearly 70 counties until a decision is made about the accuracy of the Intoxilyzer 5000EN. However, the state has been planning to phase out the machine for some time for a more updated model.
