How can I go about suing the PA DMV?
They have wrongfully suspended my license 7 months ago and I have to keep renting a car because I cannot get a Florida License, to take out a loan to get a car, I keep having to fax in documents (I live in Florida now), and they keep saying they never get them, but it costs money from Florida to fax them every time. I told them the fax number and they confirm that is their fax number. But they never get them. I am spending $1,000 per month renting due to I can't buy a car. Do I have rights to sue? I Don't know what lawyer could handle this. You would think I had a DUI. It was a traffic ticket that was PAID but they suspended my license anyway.

Plea bargaining a DUI ?
Someone I know has 4 DUIs in a 2 year period. I have noticed in the court docket that there has been a change of plea. Can you plea bargain DUI conviction for a lesser sentence, and just what is the normal penalty for fourth DUI in KY? Isn't there some mandatory jail time there?

What are some examples of DUI diversion community service ?
A friend of mine has a DUI and may go the pre trail diversion route, and isn't sure what community service she will have to do. It is obviously working for free, but can she choose places like Habitat for Humanity ,Food For the Poor etc, or is it like cleaning of the street and public parks like what prisoners do ? Can she opt to do it before her limited license expires. If it expires she will not be able to drive herself to community service . Is doing this ahead of time good for the judges or prosecutors ?
Most courts and probation departments have an approved list of community service providers. Call the court and find...
What are the chances of a DUI case getting nolle prosequi a the Pre Trial Conference ?
I have a DUI case pending and I was offered Pre Trial Diversion and my attorney has informed me that the cop lied and wrote some untruthful facts on the affidavit which her evidence will show a different story. The lawyer has made a motion to dismiss based on her evidence and if I want to fight it I will forfeit the PTD option, since the prosecutor will have to defend the motion. This is unfair because I don't want to lose at trial because I was told the cop can try to change his facts even though he wrote an affidavit . I think the State Attorney in FL scares people into taking a PTD contract. I say scare because its a sure thing for me in terms of Nolle Prosequi and money for them. Why do judges not throw out the case on the day of the PTC if the motions to suppress and evidence is good?
You need to talk to your lawyer about this. In every litigation you need to choose between a compromise, which may mean...
Can I get 6 months of time for my first DUI with no accident or prior records ?

There's a U.S. Supreme Court case, Kehoe, which places the burden in the State to establish that an actual traffic...
