United States District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia

Case Filed:

6/18/2012

Case Settled:

1/1/1900

Allegations

Federal statutes enacted in 2005 require that all drivers have a current valid medical certificate issued by a medical examiner whose name appears on the National Registry of Medical Examiners.  On April 20, 2012 FMCSA published a final rule creating the National Registry of Medical Examiners but exempting Mexican and Canadian drivers from the requirement to have a current valid medical certificate.  On June 18, 2012, OOIDA challenged FMCSA’s legal authority to exempt Mexican and Canadian drivers from this statutory requirement.

OOIDA filed a Writ for Certiorari to the US Supreme Court on March 13, 2014 seeking a judicial review.
