  1. If the alleged DWI was in Texas and you claim that you were falsely arrested, you need to ask these questions in the Texas forum. That is where any suit would originate

    The law office of Anders Ferrington 601-316-8428 practices state wide. In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but instead need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice.


  2. In Mississippi, you would be able to reinstate your CDL. As far as your Texas employer, you would need to consult a Texas attorney for that information.


  3. I am not quite sure of the term you used to describe the manner in which your DUI case in Texas was handled.I do understand that your blood was tested,and you were initially charged with a DWI(that is the way Texas charges for driving under the influence) pending results of your blood test results.Once these results were received the Prosecutor evaluated your case for trial,and with a blood test in your favor,decided to not prosecute this charge. I don't have any information about the initial reason for your stop,and if the officer had a reason (probable cause) to stop you,then you probably do not have a case for the losses you have suffered. You should go to your former employer and show him the Texas decision to not prosecute your DWI and try to get your job back. Good Luck!
