Unconstitutionally criminalizing the refusal of a search
The ACLU-MN filed an amicus brief in a case that deals with a Minnesota statute that criminalizes refusal of a blood or urine test for alcohol. The ACLU-MN argues that the Minnesota statute is unconstitutional and should be struck down. In their brief, the ACLU-MN argues that no Minnesotan should be subject to such a search without at least the safeguard of a warrant.
In the case itself, Ryan Thompson was convicted of a crime for refusing a search. The Minnesota Court of Appeals overturned the conviction and the ACLU is asking the Minnesota Supreme Court uphold the conviction.
