Highlight

A law enforcement officer's administration of a breath test to determine alcohol consumption is a search.
Consent is one recognized exception to the warrant requirement. To be effective, consent must be voluntarily given under the totality of the circumstances and must not be coerced by explicit or implicit means or by implied threat or covert force.
Absent authority and a reasoned analysis to support it, the mere assertion of a statute's unconstitutionality is insufficient to adequately raise a constitutional question.
A party pursuing a constitutional claim must make a strong case supported by both fact and law or forego the claim.
