Manhattan Law

My son refused to blow. The discovery dash cam video shows ONLY HIS FST. He did fairly poor on the FST. A long explanation, but a full dash cam would likely aid the hit/run defense as son was on the scene with his car when the police arrived. The other driver did not speak English, 3 squads, 4 witnesses, 4 officers & lots of confusion that would likely be cleared up by a full video. As of today, we don't know if the entire videos were not given at discovery or if they don't exist resulting from the officers only activating for FST. I already have rule 411, Kladis, law on State Police cams, Webster, Strobel, & Schmidt. Looking for: case law dealing with officers obligation to turn video on (i.e. "cherry picking the use of video") and case law supporting motion for extra discovery. Thanks

Only 1 speeding ticket on record 3 years ago. Completed all court requirements. Is it possible to have hearing with SOS for removal of BAIID before the 1 year summary suspension is up in Illinois? What are chances of winning hearing?
The only way to end a suspension early is to get it rescinded in court - apparently your lawyer did not do that.

Got two dui's close together served some jail time and got two years probation..I will have all classes ect by the time I go back to court to wrap everything up.

I was arrested in early december for possession of 30 or less grams of weed 15 grams to be exact and a grinder. I was released on my name with the name promise that i would appear in court and not disobey any laws. On dec26th i was arrested for POSSESS OF CANNABIS LESS 2.5 G, POSSESSION OF DRUG PARAPHENALL, IMPROPER TURN SIGNAL, DRVG UNDER INFLUENCE OF DRUG, FOLLOWING TOO CLOSELY and DUI ANY AMOUNT OF DRUG. My basic question is whats gonna be the eventual conclusion to all this. Any light shed on this subject would be a monolith of help.

My DUI was on 7/19/14 and my last court date where I recived my supervision was on 9/22/14.

Can I goto the DMV and get a new license?
