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

Response to Defendants' Opposition To Rule 59 Motion


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)
