The Florida Supreme Court was scheduled to hear arguments this week over a challenge to the breathalyzer used to test for alcohol levels of three defendants. The trial judge had originally ruled that the manufacturer of the breathalyzers had to turn over the software used in the machine, so the defendants could to examine it for accuracy.

The 5th District court of Appeals quashed the ruling of the trial judge, and this led to the Florida Supreme Court agreeing to hear the case. Oral arguments have been rescheduled for February 5th.
