License Suspension Appeal For Drug Charge Sets New Legal Precedent

July 3, 2012

Mark Casazza had a big win in the Appellate Division on Thursday and set new legal precedent by saving his client’s driver’s license from getting suspended due to an out of state drug charge conviction. The Appellate Court in a published opinion reversed the trial judge’s decision and for the first time interpreted New Jersey’s ability to impose a driver’s license suspension for an out of state conviction for possession of drug paraphernalia. The Motor Vehicle Commission initially wanted a 2 year driver’s license suspension, the trial judge imposed a 6 month suspension, and the Appeal resulted in NO suspension. This decision may help all New Jersey drivers who are convicted of a drug charge in another state that is not substantially similar to a drug charge under New Jersey law. An article was published in this week’s edition of The New Jersey Law Journal recognizing the significance of the decision.

“The attorney working on my personal injury case was knowledgable, courteous, and payed careful attention to every detail. He was sure to address any questions and concerns thoughtfully and respectfully. I have had an excellent experience interacting with the firm and I highly recommend the law firm of Rudnick, Addonizio, Pappa & Casazza to others.”
