The Minnesota Supreme Court has announced that it will be releasing its decision in State v. Brooks, tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. The Brooks case was remanded back to Minnesota from the U.S. Supreme Court following the decision in Missouri v. McNeely, which held that exigent circumstances was not sufficient to justify a warrantless blood draw from a DWI.
It is anticipated that the Brooks case will lead some guidance as to how the McNeely decision affects warrantless urine tests and also the legality of Minnesota’s Implied Consent laws.
