IRP Judicial Review and Appeals
If the adjudicator at The Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles (RoadSafetyBC) upholds your Immediate Roadside Prohibition, the only way to further challenge the driving suspension is to appeal the RoadSafetyBC review decision to court by way of judicial review.
The lawyers at Acumen Law Corporation conduct judicial review and appeals of IRP decisions to BC Supreme Court, the BC Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. Many of the key court decisions were the results of the hard-working lawyers at Acumen Law including court decisions on the constitutional validity of the IRP law. Acumen Lawyers were the first to succeed at the Supreme Court of Canada opposing the BC Government’s leave to appeal in the case of Murray v. the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles. Acumen IRP lawyers were successful in the leave-to-appeal application in what was the first hearing before the Supreme Court of Canada to deal with the legalities of the IRP DUI law.
The decision of Buhr v. the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles, a case argued by Acumen IRP lawyer Kyla Lee, ruled that the Superintendent’s Report on Approved Screening Devices was inadmissible, opening the door for many more successful appeals of IRP review decisions. Acumen Law Corporation has been at the forefront of the newsworthy developments in IRP law. Acumen lawyers succeeded in having the Interlock requirement lifted for thousands of British Columbians due to their BC Supreme Court challenge.
