State v. Gerome
An evidentiary challenge to the admission of the Intoxilyzer 8000 breath machine.
State v. Venturelli
A jury trial case where Mr. Huey’s questioning lead to the Ohio Department of Health’s head of the Alcohol and Drug Testing Program being declared to not be an expert on Ohio’s primary breath testing machine.
State v Lancaster
Another major challenge which resulted in a finding that the Intoxilyzer 8000 was unreliable and ordering the results be excluded.
State v. Benner
Another case where Mr. Huey was successful at getting the head of the Alcohol and Drug Testing Program to be declared not to be qualified to testify as an expert supporting the results of Ohio’s primary breath testing machine, even though, after State v. Venturelli, she obtained additional training at the factory.
State v Eversole
A successful appeal involving vehicle searches after OVI arrests. The prosecution argued that an OVI arrest automatically authorizes search of the vehicle and this particular police agency searched every vehicle. Our win in this case required the prosecutor to throw out dozens of cases involving Concealed Carry Permit holders with weapons in their vehicles.
