The Missouri Court of Appeals, Southern District – SD35818, had a ruling in BOBBY J. CARTER, Petitioner-Appellant vs. DIRECTOR OF REVENUE, STATE OF MISSOURI, Respondent-Respondent regarding “Notice Play”. In a statute governing judicial review of administrative decision, subsections saying that the department’s decision shall be final at 15 days after notice is mailed, or 15 days after driver is notified, mean the same thing. Notice of deadlines to seek judicial review were clear as to both base and commercial privileges. Circuit court did not err in dismissing a petition untimely filed.
