Administrative Law


The year 1969 produced little in the way of legislation affecting administrative law, and the cases reviewing administrative action noted here are not necessarily included because they indicate anything new, but because they indicate someone did not understand what is old. The decisions of the Department of Motor Vehicles, in particular, have been the subject of most of the litigation during the past year. These cases present most clearly the struggle of the courts to evolve some unifying principles in the application of the law to the driver who drinks. Not all the cases are in harmony, but trends seem to be developing.
