Update Our Fight for Breathalyzer Records: NYPD Expected to Begin Production

March 9, 2013 in DWI, Freedom of Information

On Thursday, March 7, we appeared our first court appearance in Matter of Law Offices of Adam D. Perlmutter, P.C. v. NYPD.  The NYPD missed their deadline to file an answer, and requested another 30 days for their response.  Over our objection the NYPD has been given an extension until April 4th to respond.

The NYPD has indicated that they will likely begin to turn over these documents before the next Court appearance, scheduled on April 18th.  We look forward to finally being able to examine and share these records.  The production and publication of these records will add a new level of transparency to DWI prosecutions, and, hopefully, motivate the NYPD to higher standards.
