Can the city have my truck towed out of my driveway? The tags are up today and I'm working on it with no warning.

    Has the city given you a reason for the tow? And is "your drive way" on "your property"?

  • Driveways may not be your property in every sense. City ordinances may explicitly forbid you from repairing a vehicle in your driveway.

  • Before engaging a lawyer, consider checking if the city has an appeals process.

    Lots of cities have ordinances against non-functioning cars in your own driveway. Being registered doesn't help. Mar 17 '21 at 17:35

You need a lawyer who handles civil-rights law. Fourth Amendment search-and-seizure law is the heart of most police-misconduct claims, so you should look for a lawyer who handles that type of work: false arrest, malicious prosecution, excessive force, etc.
