Got 6 month restricted license in November 2010 from DMV for DUI arrest. Planned on fighting charge, changed mind and took plea bargain in March 2011. The Court handed me ANOTHER 6 month suspension which started in March. My attorney said there was a mistake and went to Vista to get a copy of the docket with the nunc pro tunc order on it but he didnt see it on the document. Assuming oversight, he asked the Judge, who responded "We don't Nunc Pro Tunc in Vista" and that its a "new policy" circa 2011. He tells me nunc pro tunc is automatic, despite the refusal of the court to oblige us "in writing" and that if pulled over, simply show a copy of his email and my original suspension paperwork and I shouldn't have any problems. Does this seem legit or made-up to cover his mistake? Advice?From my attorney: I went up to get a copy of the docket with the nunc pro tunc order on it but it didn't have it written on document. Figured it was an oversight. I added the case to calendar and asked the Judge, who responded "We don't Nunc Pro Tunc in Vista." That is a "new policy" circa 2011 according to the public defender in the room. My legal opinion is that nunc pro tunc is automatic, despite the refusal of the court to oblige us "in writing." I recommend that you keep a copy of the original suspension together with the new suspension in a folder in the trunk and if there are any issues, just show them a copy of this particular email. The one thing you don't want to do is get into it with the DMV- they aren't going to "be cool" but all law enforcement agencies understand how these things work- just make sure you can show them the license was suspended twice for the same reason. Since you have your drivers license back, you don't need to do anything else at the end of the suspension.
