McNeely to Bernard - Where are we?

Date: Tuesday, April 7, 2015 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Venue: Presidents Room / Minnesota State Bar Association  Minneapolis, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $15.00

Deadline to Register: April 5, 2015

Max Keller and Paul Baertschi will offer defense and prosecutor perspectives on the litigation over the admissibility of breath, blood and urine tests and test refusals after all the litigation and the most recent Minnesota Supreme Court decision in State v. Bernard. Is there still life in the argument about the lawfulness of Minnesota’s Implied Consent process after Brooks and Bernard? What about refusals to submit to blood and urine tests? Are there implications for the viability of Minnesota’s pre-test right to counsel after the Supreme Court found that breath tests are justified as searches “incident to arrest”? These attorneys promise a lively discussion and debate over how narrowly or broadly we should be interpreting McNeely, Brooks and Bernard and will offer their insights and predictions on the likelihood of one more major decision from the Minnesota Supreme Court on the subject of refusing blood and urine tests.

Lunch and registration will begin at 12:00 p.m. The program will begin at approximately 12:15 p.m.
