To obtain documents from the forensic toxicology lab in blood and urine cases, you must email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also fax or mail the request to the attention of Dr. Lisa Reidy at the University of Miami Forensic Toxicology Lab, 1600 NW 10th Avenue “RSMB, R-5” Room 7025A, Miami, Florida 33136, Phone: (305) 243-5629, Fax: (305) 243-1339. You must pay a reasonable cost for the photocopying before the documents are produced. When the lab receives payment, the lab will forward the documents within two to three weeks. The production of the litigation packet may require additional processing time depending on the circumstances of each case. If the laboratory fails to do so, you should file a Motion for an Order to Show Cause with the court. You may request the confirmatory test, calibrations done on the instruments the day of the confirmatory test; chain of custody documents; property receipt; instrument maintenance and repair records.
Please Note: The State reserves the right to refrain from providing any and all non-exculpatory, non-impeachment documents that the State does not intend to introduce in a particular defendant’s hearing or trial. The State has the sole discretion to determine what it intends to use at hearing or trial. See Rule 3.220. This document is not a contract and does not obviate a defendant’s obligation to investigate his or her own case or to exercise due diligence. We reserve the right to argue that the State’s failure to provide any of the documents does not entitle the defense to a State-charged continuance.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact the State Attorney’s Office at (305) 324-2900.
