Robert Collins SMITH, Petitioner, v. Robert McCARTHY, as Director of Motor Vehicles, Respondent.
L. A. 25806.
Decided: June 02, 1960
Robert J. North, Camarillo, for petitioner. Stanley Mosk Atty. Gen., E. C. Funke, Asst. Atty. Gen., Warren H. Deering and Arthur deGoede, Deputy Attys. Gen., for respondent.
This proceeding presents the same problem as that disposed of in Hough v. McCarthy, 5 Cal.Rptr. 668, and Sauer v. McCarthy, 5 Cal.Rptr. 682 and those decisions are controlling here.
The alternative writ of mandate is discharged, and a peremptory writ is denied.
This case involves the same problem as that involved in Hough v. McCarthy, 5 Cal.Rptr. 668. For the reasons set forth in my dissent in that case, 5 Cal.Rptr. at page 677, it is my opinion that the writ of mandate should issue ordering the director to set aside petitioner's order of suspension and to grant him the hearing provided by law.
Without suggesting accord with the views of the majority in Hough v. McCarthy, 5 Cal.Rptr. 668, in other respects, I dissent because I am of the opinion that petitioner has been denied the hearing to which he is entitled by law.
