Breath tests banned from courtrooms in DUI cases


A panel of Orange County judges could decide as early as Thursday whether a previous ruling that resulted in breath tests being kept out of court will be overturned.

Defense attorneys have been able to convince judges the results of the Intoxilyzer 8000 can’t be trusted in court without the company first turning over its secret source code to the defense. The company, CMI, won’t fully disclose what it calls its trade secrets, so the tests are effectively banned.
