May 2018 - BOA Hearing, License Restored
Our client accidentally forgot to pay a civil traffic ticket in New York. This caused his license to be suspended in that state. Years later, he was stopped for an unlicensed operation, since he forgot to pay his ticket. After challenging the charge in New York, the charge was reduced to an unattended motor vehicle violation. Despite this, Massachusetts had already reciprocated the New York charge of unlicensed operation. Therefore, the Registry of Motor Vehicles in Massachusetts suspended his license and CDL for sixty (60) days. The client was then not able to continue his business since he owns a truck driving company.
Attorney Bernard presented this case in front of the Board of Appeals (BOA) at Springfield City Hall. He explained the client's situation completely to the BOA and they voted to modify the decision of the Registry of Motor Vehicles. Our client's license and CDL were fully reinstated.
