Robert G. Walton and Judge Deborah J. Nicastro created a driver's license reinstatement program.
Judge Nicastro's experience as a judge in the Garfield Heights Municipal Court showed that persons with suspended driver's licenses have great difficulty understanding and meeting the requirements arising out of suspension. A person whose suspension ends cannot be restored to valid status until all requirements are met.
Judge Nicastro and Mr. Walton wrote a Driver License Suspension and Reinstatement Handbook which they periodically update. With the help of volunteers, including attorneys and students at Cleveland-Marshall Law School. They have conducted many license reinstatement clinics in northeastern Ohio.
