Lorentz invariance testing of weak decay mechanisms has recently been used as a method to examine the assumptions of the standard model of particle physics. Building on a general expression of Lorentz invariance violating muon decay, that had been formulated in the muon rest frame, an expression for the energy spectrum of the decay electron in the laboratory frame is obtained. Since this expression now contains Lorentz violating parameters, it can be used to design experiments that would put bounds on the magnitude of Lorentz violation. To make it possible to relate experimental data between experiments, transformations are given that move these coordinate system dependent parameters between muon rest frame, laboratory frame, and an inertial reference frame fixed in space.
