The Client is a truck driver dependent on his Class A commercial license in order to earn a living. While driving his car, he was stopped by the CHP for “weaving”. His attorney obtained a copy of a video of the stop, which showed that the Client was not committing any violation of the rules of the road when he was stopped. At the Client’s DMV hearing, the DMV refused to view the video or admit it into evidence. The DMV then suspended his license for four-months, and his commercial license for one-year.
The Client came to us to save his license and livelihood. We were able to demonstrate that it was likely the DMV had violated the Client’s Due Process Right to a fair and meaningful hearing before it suspended his licenses. The Court put the suspension on hold while the case is pending.
