U.S. Supreme Court

Jennings v. Mahoney, 404 U.S. 25 (1971)

Jennings v. Mahoney

No. 71-5179

Decided November 9, 1971

404 U.S. 25


Appellant, an uninsured Utah motorist who was involved in an accident and whose license was suspended, attacks Utah's Motor Vehicle Safety Responsibility Act as not affording the procedural due process required by Bell v. Burson, 402 U. S. 535. However, although there is plainly a substantial question whether the statutory scheme, on its face, affords the procedural due process required by Bell v. Burson, here, where a state court stayed the suspension order pending completion of judicial review and conducted a hearing at which appellant was given an opportunity to present evidence and cross-examine witnesses, there was no denial of procedural due process.

26 Utah 2d 128, 485 P.2d 1404, affirmed.
