Shannon Kohler v. Pat Englade, Elmer Litchfield, et al.

Defendants' Response to Plaintiff's Motion For New Trial or Amendment of Judgment Rule 59(a) & Rule 59(e) Federal Rules of Civil Procedure


EPIC Brief Supports DNA Privacy.

EPIC has submitted an amicus brief in Kohler v. Englade, a case in which police identified a man, later cleared, as a suspect in a serial rape-murder investigation. They compelled him to provide a DNA sample after he refused when the police cast a huge DNA dragnet, gathering samples from more than 1,200 men. EPIC argued that the constitution protects a person's privacy interest in his DNA and explained that such dragnets have failed repeatedly to identify perpetrators. (Oct. 12, 2005)

This is the Defendants' Response to Plaintiff's Motion for a new trial or amendment of judgment under rule 59(a) & rule 59(e) of the federal rules of civil procedure.
