Thousands of Oklahoma drivers whose licenses were revoked by the Department of Public Safety through the use of a faulty affidavit could soon learn whether they will be part of a class-action lawsuit seeking millions of dollars in refunds.
The lawsuit seeks refunds for an estimated 40,000 drivers whose licenses were revoked after being cited with alcohol-related driving offenses between 2008 and October 2013. The plaintiffs also seek to have their driving privileges restored and the cases expunged from their driving records.
Nine plaintiffs have sued the Department of Public Safety in Oklahoma County challenging their license revocations, while seven drivers have sued in Tulsa County. Oklahoma County District Judge Roger Stuart is set to hear a motion for class-action status Aug. 7.
