My father was in a car accident after consuming alcohol at a casino and the toxicology report stated he was 3 times over the limit. After researching the state of a person that is 3 times over the limit, I am very confused as to why they allowed my father to leave and drive away in that state. I need to know if this is negligence on their part or should I just let it go.
The casino is not responsible for your father's driving while intoxicated in Louisiana.
two tickets for. one for speeding & one for driving while license suspended
you need to consult a local attorney to know what to say and what not to.
I was convicted with a dui in California Sacramento county in 2012, Im still on informal probation. I completed my work project right away. I have not completed my court ordered 3 month dui classes that are required by the dmv to reinstate my driving privileges. I recently moved my residency to Louisiana for work, and do not plan to move back to California. Can i take a class here in Louisiana to satisfy CA-DMV to reinstate my Lic? Or can i take a different course of action. I am not attempting to get a Louisiana DL, I am aware the DMV works on the same network and honor other states suspensions. The issue im faced with is I cant take a class in Cal. while I live in Louisiana, and Ca DMV will not accept a dui class completed out-of-state unless approved by a Ca judge. Or so I've heard.
You need to have someone make contact with the court and explain your situation and see if they will allow you to take...
