July 2011 Department of Licensing DOL Hearing
Mark W. Garka subpoenaed the arresting Washington State Patrol Trooper to the Department of Licensing (DOL) hearing. Mark interviewed the Trooper at the hearing and it was determined that the Trooper improperly advised Mark's Client of her Implied Consent Warnings (ICW). Mark argued to the DOL Hearing Officer that this improper advisement was contrary to the law. The DOL Hearing Officer agreed with Mark and found in favor of the Client. The Client did not lose her Driver's License from this Civil action.
