Back in May we had the story of the man who wanted his DNA info back. During the local police investigation of a murder, police had asked for DNA samples from people all over the area (whether or not this was "voluntary" is still up for debate). Once a suspect was arrested, one of the guys who had donated his DNA asked for the sample back, saying the police had no right to keep his DNA on file. The police disagreed. Now, the guy, Floyd Wagster Jr., is going to court to try to get his DNA back, while also trying to get rid of the Louisiana DNA law that lets police create such a DNA database.
