There’s a new legal hurdle to jump for those hoping to have their driver’s license reinstated.
Tennessee’s attorney general is fighting a recent ruling that reinstates driver’s licenses for those who can’t afford to pay their traffic tickets, court costs, and fees.
Last week, a federal judge ordered Tennessee to stop suspending driver’s licenses for people who haven’t paid their traffic tickets or fines.
The judge also told the state to reinstate licenses already suspended for that reason.
The Department of Safety and Homeland Security won’t suspend any more licenses for failure to pay
However, the process of reinstating previously suspended licenses is now on hold until the judge hears the state’s appeal.
