my lawyer filed a motion to suppress based on a bad stop and the state has yet to respond at all as far as I know. is this a good sign? don't they have a time frame in which they have to respond?

he pulled up to my window at night and said i had bloodshot eyes and used that along with the fact that i had pulled over for maybe a minute in a parking lot to fix my stereo, as probably cause for dui. At which point he asked for my license and then ran it and had an emergency call come in so he ordered me to stay there while another cop came to do sobriety tests. can he really detain me on this alone??

I know someone who has a permanently revoked license in Florida due to 4 DUI's. 2 out of state, and 2 in Florida. The last DUI was in May 2011 and he received his revocation in July 2011. This person has since moved to Vermont. He seems to think he can waltz down here to Florida and get an administrative hearing and get his license back just like that and be able to drive freely in Vermont. How realistic is this? I fear this person driving because he is a very active alcoholic. Will it be easy to get his license back after 4 DUI's? The last one he had a UBAL of .23. If he were to get a hardship/employment license reinstated. , would he be able to drive in Vermont? Florida law says he cannot even get an administrative hearing until 5 years after the last dui conviction.
Permanent revocation means just what it sounds like. That suspension should make him unable to obtain a license in any...
