GRL Law secures yet another dismissal for a CDL driver.
DOT enforcement stopped our client for driving past an open scale. The officer conducted a Level I inspection and ultimately cited her for multiple violations.
Plea negotiations ended abruptly when the officer refused to cut any slack. So we tried all four charges to the magistrate.
The officer admitted on cross-examination that he was never placed under oath when the citations were “notarized.” The Iowa Constitution requires that all cases be tried on information under oath.
A constitutional violation, you say?
The court had no choice but to dismiss all four citations under the circumstances.
Do you think the officer regrets that decision? You bet.
N . . . F . . . G!
