Ratka v. North Department of Transportation

No. 20130083

Per Curiam.

1] Peter Ratka appealed from a district court judgment affirming an administrative decision revoking his driving privileges for a period of one year. Ratka argues that he was not afforded a reasonable opportunity to speak with an attorney before deciding whether to submit to a blood test, that he did not refuse to submit to an onsite screening test, and that his driving privileges could not be revoked for refusing an onsite screening test under the circumstances in this case. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(5).
