Breathalyzer Source Code

A Minnesota man charged with a third degree Driving Under the Influence (DUI) offense has asked for the source code of the breathalyzer used to check his sobriety.  An unusual request, however, it does make sense in that he wants to be sure the program is working as it should.  The source code is, of course, the basis of one of the company’s lines of business.  The Minnesota Supreme Court has stated that, based on the contract with the state, the company must turn over its source code.

Apparently, other breathalyzer companies make their source code available.  If this one doesn’t, this suit may go away, but anyone who has been convicted may bring their own.
