Indequate Remedy at Law

Motorists have no adequate remedy at law.  As the Supreme Court recognized in Mackey v. Montrym, someone’s interest in their license to operate a motor vehicle is a substantial one, for the Commonwealth will not be able to make a driver whole for any personal inconvenience and economic hardship suffered by reason of any erroneous suspension.  (citing Dixon v. Love).

Just such an “economic hardship” occurrs to someone when their left without the opportunity to work as a commercial driver, in the wake of the Selectmen’s reprehensible fraud.  If this judgment is permitted to stand, an irreparable harm will continue to befall such motorists.  They should no longer suffer the negative impact of an erroneous driving record, increased automobile liability insurance rates, and continued threat to their livelihood.  (Id.).
