PennDot Must Obey or Pay

In the case of Cleary v PennDot, the Commonwealth Court ruled that it was proper to hold PennDot in contempt of Court for not following a Court Order. Mr. Cleary received several traffic citations which were eventually dismissed. In the meantime PennDot issued a notice of license suspension. Mr. Cleary appealed to the Court. After a brief hearing the trial judge ordered PennDot to correct Mr. Cleary’s driving record. When PennDot failed to follow the Court order, the trial judge held PennDot in contempt of court and ordered it to pay a $1400.00 penalty. The trial judge’s decision was upheld and PennDot was ordered to pay the penalty.
