Wyoming Supreme Court hears DUI testing case

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Supreme Court is considering a challenge to a recent state law that allows judges to give permission over the phone to police officers to draw blood or perform other tests on people suspected of drunken driving.

Two drivers who submitted to testing after a Teton County judge authorized officers over the phone are contending the tests should be disallowed in their cases because the search warrants don’t meet constitutional requirements for written affidavits.

The state contends the telephone warrants are as valid as ones with written affidavits because the conversation between the officer and the judge is recorded.
The state adopted the law allowing telephonic approval for DUI tests in 2011.

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case Tuesday and will issue a ruling later.
