Idaho Dept. of Trans. v. Van CampAnnotate this Case
This appeal arose from the district court's reversal of the Idaho Transportation Department's (Department) suspension of Johnathan Paul Van Camp's driver's license subsequent to a urine analysis that revealed the presence of cyclobenzaprine in his system. The district court held that the Department had not properly shown that cyclobenzaprine was intoxicating. The Department timely appealed, arguing that the arresting officer's observations of impairment, in combination with an evidentiary test revealing a drug in Van Camp's system, were sufficient to permit an administrative license suspension. The Department asked the Supreme Court to reverse the district court's decision vacating the suspension. Finding that Van Camp failed to establish a proper ground to support an order vacating the suspension, the Supreme Court reversed the district court and remanded the case for further proceedings.
