Dubbelde v. State ex. rel. Dep’t of Transp.Annotate this Case
In April 2011, Appellant was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) and pleaded guilty to DUI. The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) did not notify Appellant until August 2012 that he would be disqualified from using his commercial driver’s license for one year and that his driver’s license would be suspended for ninety days. The Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) upheld the suspension and disqualification. Appellant filed a petition for judicial review, challenging the proceedings instituted nearly a year and a half after his DUI conviction. The district court affirmed the OAH decisions. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) the administrative proceedings were promptly instituted as required by Wyo. Stat. Ann. 16-3-113; and (2) Appellant did not establish that the delay deprived him of procedural due process.
