Bath & Edmonds prepares to file an appellate brief in a case stemming from a motor vehicle accident in Lawrence, Kansas. At the time of the accident the police detained the motorist and subsequently obtained a sample of his blood pursuant to Kansas law. B & E argued the statute was unconstitutional and the taking of the blood sample was a violation of the 4th Amendment. The District Court agreed and suppressed the sample. The Douglas County District Attorney’s Office filed an interlocutory appeal which is now pending before the Kansas Appellate Courts. The case involves issues very similar to an opinion released February 7, 2014 (State v. Declerck; Kansas Court of Appeals No. 109,759).
