DOT Backs Down After NCLA Sues Over Unfair In-House Tribunals

NCLA successfully challenged the Department of Transportation’s unlawful and unconstitutional in-house tribunals. DOT subjected NCLA’s client, Polyweave Packaging Inc., to a six-year prosecution in one such tribunal for violating a law that does not exist. The prosecution flunked the most basic standards for fairness and impartiality because employees who shared an office acted as both prosecutor and judge.

NCLA President and General Counsel Mark Chenoweth moderates a panel discussion with: Sheng Li, NCLA Litigation Counsel, who leads Polyweave’s lawsuits against DOT; Neil Werthmann, Polyweave’s Owner and President; and Jerry Cox, who has represented countless clients in DOT’s abusive administrative proceedings.
