I have won an ALS appeal hearing, but the DMV is giving me the run around about giving me my license back.

Asked almost 2 years ago - Austell, GA

I refused a breath test in January, I appealed the license suspension and had my first hearing on March 14th. Soon after that judge upheld my license suspension. My attorney appealed again and another judge overturned the previous judges decision rescinding my license suspension. I took a certified copy of the court order to a full service DMV and several hours and several calls later... I have been getting the run around and was even told by a rep from the hearing dept with the Ga DDS call center, that "we have to check this out because a judge can't overturn another judges decision". What type of idiots are our tax dollars paying to provide us with a public service?! Finally this morning another rep from the DDS legal dept told me that my attorney has to call them directly.

    Answered . You are dealing with the bureaucracy at the DDS. It will be resolved. Your attorney needs to call the Legal Department at DDS. They can clear it up for you.
