    Last year, I prevailed in a claim for unpaid wages with a former employer and was awarded a judgment by the county labor commissioners office.

    Problem is, that judgment is still unpaid. I have contacted a judgment enforcement attorney to take over collection.

    Adding to the problem is the fact that this employer has several different DOT authorities, one of which was ordered out of service for a failure to pay a fine(I think, but do not know what the actual violation was). I am highly confident that they simply transferred trucks into one of their other authorities and continued to operate as normal.

    Does anyone know how to compile a list of DOT authorities that share a common address and/or individual party? Further, is there a way to get information from DMV (regardless of state) about trucks and trailers registered by the same parties or under the same DOT authorities?

    My attorney is working with the county sheriff's office to seize and auction the equipment (I don't want it unless it is 2017 or newer and passes a DOT inspection as if it was new)....

    Is this the same company that everyone told you not to go with or when you had truck issues you got screwed more than once but stayed because of accidents in your DAC or something along the lines of that??? I vaguely remember. Your from California right???

    You are correct..... back then, I was between a rock and a hard place and couldn't leave without somewhere else to go. We parted ways when I was actually at home on planned home time when my dad had surgery to remove his left leg above the knee. When I was ready and able to return, they never returned my calls... it wasn't until I took myself in to find out what the deal was and I was told, without explanation that I had been removed from the company insurance policy, yet my former co-driver ACTUALLY hit a stationary police cruiser with lights flashing (his fault and totally preventable and I was off duty at the time preparing to go SB), yet he wasn't removed.... when we had the hearing, the reason they gave was that there were no trucks available ..

    Funny story, they bought a truck and trailer from the school I went to and THEY wouldn't repair it even to use for skills practice because it was not worth the cost of repairs to get it running, let alone to pass an inspection. ..

    Yes, but it has been a year and I am thinking of looking for a carrier that offers health insurance.... I also want to go back to grab and drag to get away from live loads....

    Is the company you sued still in business?

    The lawyer you are paying should know the answers to what you are asking.
