Con Ed driver files lawsuit after license revocation ends

A Con Ed worker who was involved in a fatal accident that left an elderly New York man dead was found guilty in August of not exercising due care. As a result, the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles revoked his license for one month.

The accident occurred on Nov. 27, 2013, at the intersection of Avenue C and E. 16th Street. At about 5:15 p.m., the worker was making a left turn in a Con Ed truck when he collided with the 88-year-old woman. After three years of court hearings and an appeal, the man was finally found guilty and his license was revoked. After the month has ended, the worker filed a lawsuit against the DMV, claiming that the agency was taking to long to process his application for the reinstatement of his license.

When the DMV revokes a person's license, the agency may or may not decide to restore the person's driving privileges. However, the worker's attorney argued that since the department could not make a reinstatement determination by the month's end, the court should reduce the revocation to a suspension so that he could get his license back and return to work.

Depending on the charges a person may be facing, the administration consequences could include either a suspension of the person's license or a revocation of the license. When a suspension ends, the person can get their license back immediately once they pay a fee. After a license revocation, however, the DMV gets to determine whether or not the person gets their license back. An attorney may help a client reduce the consequences from a revocation to a suspension to get their license back faster.
