State v. Russo
In State v. Russo, 62 Conn. App. 129, 133, 773 A.2d 965 (2001), the defendant was convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor. Id. at 130.
At trial, the court allowed the arresting officer to testify about the field tests he administered, including the HGN test. Id. at 133.
On appeal, the defendant challenged the court's decision to admit the HGN test results without first requiring the state to satisfy the criteria for the admission of scientific evidence as set out in Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 509 U.S. 579 (1993). State v. Russo, supra, 62 Conn. App. 131.
