Confronting Your Accuser

,----[ Quote ]
| A major breathalyzer vendor is facing increasing pressure to make the source
| code of its product available for inspection by defendants. I’m pleased to
| see my home state of Minnesota leading the charge. The Constitution gives you
| the right to confront your accuser, and if your accuser is 50,000 lines of
| assembly code, then you have a right to examine that code. And if CMI doesn’t
| want to release the source code for its products, then it shouldn’t have gone
| into a business in which its product is the key witness against defendants in
| criminal cases.
