CASE ENTRY

Sandoval v. County of Sonoma

California law permits police to impound vehicles for 30 days if the vehicle’s driver has never been issued a license. Nevertheless, in two separate instances, police in Sonoma County impound vehicles driven by drivers who have been issued licenses (both Mexican, one expired). And both times the driver had a friend with a valid California license who could have taken possession. Ninth Circuit: Damages upheld.
