I might be able to help her--the Florida DUI statute is broader than our DUI statute. In CA, at least under the current law, there must be actual driving (with some exceptions). The DUI statute in Florida, on the other hand, includes merely being in actual physical control of a vehicle. There may be a possibility of filing a Writ to contest CA's action, but there is also a neat trick that the FL lawyer can possibly do to make the CA problem(s) go away.
Normally cops are not supposed to seize a license from an out of state driver, but sometimes they do. I would need more information, but you are welcome to call my office tomorrow afternoon and we can talk about this. -Mindy McQueen (805) 482-1961
