OATH has issued another positive decision, rejecting the continued suspension of a a driver who was arrested based on a complaint by a longtime friend that he punched her in the arm. The OATH judge rule: "Even presuming the criminal charge is true, as required by petitioner's rules, there are several problems with this argument. First, the reports are sparse in their description of the incident, indicating nothing other than respondent punched the complainant multiple times in the arm. Second, the responding officer did not note any visible injuries to the complainant's arm and she refused medical attention." http://archive.citylaw.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/oath/21_cases/21-2234.pdf
