Peter Ratka, Appellant
Director, North Dakota Department of Transportation, Appellee
Appeal from the District Court of Mercer County, South Central Judicial District, the Honorable David E. Reich, Judge.
Michael R. Hoffman, for appellant.
Michael T. Pitcher, Assistant Attorney General, Office of Attorney General, for appellee.
[¶ 1] Peter Ratka appealed from a district court judgment affirming an administrative decision revoking his driving privileges for a period of one year. Ratka argues that he was not afforded a reasonable opportunity to speak with an attorney before deciding whether to submit to a blood test, that he did not refuse to submit to an onsite screening test, and that his driving privileges could not be revoked for refusing an onsite screening test under the circumstances in this case. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(5).
[¶ 2] Gerald W.VandeWalle, C.J., Dale V. Sandstrom, Daniel J. Crothers, Mary Muehlen Maring, Carol Ronning Kapsner
