Wheeler Obtains license from TSA

Posted on November 13, 2001 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

After four years, Edward Wheeler, an independent limousine operator in Las Vegas, finally obtained a license from the state Transportation Services Authority (TSA) Thursday.

This is a follow up to a story that LCT has been covering regarding three independent limousine operators and their attempt to obtain licenses in Las Vegas.

Wheeler first applied for a limousine license, which is required by the state of Nevada, in the fall of 1997. However, unable to afford to complete the process when existing operators challenged his application, he rescinded his application.

Wheeler, along with two other operators unable to obtain a license (John West and Ray Vinole), formed the Independent Limousine Owner/Operator Association (ILOA), The ILOA contacted the Institute for Justice, a D.C.-based public interest law firm, for help in its legal battle.

In 1998, the Institute for Justice, on behalf of the ILOA, filed a challenge against the TSA, citing that the due process rights of three independent operators were violated. In February a district court judge ruled that the operators? due process rights were in fact violated, and that they could reapply.

Wheeler reapplied for a license in May and is the first of the three operators to receive it.
