Appeal: E.P v. DOL, #12-2-29142-0 SEA.
Attorney General's Office Concedes Department of Licensing Hearing Examiner Erroneously Suspended Client's Driver's License: After filing our brief, the Washington State Attorney General's Office agreed with our argument that the Department of Licensing hearing examiner erred in suspending our client's license following an Implied Consent hearing. The record showed the arresting officer clearly mis-informed the client that if she refused the breath test her license “could” be suspended for 90 days or a year. A correct reading of the law requires the officer to advise drivers that their license will be revoked for at least one year if they refuse.
