APPEALED FROM:

 Rutland Superior Court


DOCKET NO. 74-2-01 Rdcv

Trial Judge:  Karen R. Carroll

 

In the above-entitled cause, the Clerk will enter:

Appellant Marilynn Christian appeals from a summary judgment of the Rutland Superior Court, upholding the suspension of appellant' s driver' s license for failure to pay a penalty for operating an unregistered vehicle. We affirm.

Appellant was issued a traffic complaint for operating an unregistered vehicle. A default judgment on the complaint was entered for the State, and appellant was assessed a penalty of $100. Appellant failed to pay the penalty, and was issued a notice of suspension, which was stayed pending an administrative hearing. See 23 V.S.A. ยง 2205(d) (DMV shall suspend operator' s license if defendant fails to pay fine imposed after judgment). Following the hearing, the hearing examiner issued a written decision, concluding that the suspension was proper. Appellant appealed the administrative determination to the superior court, which stayed the suspension pending its decision. The court granted the State' s motion for summary judgment, finding that " although appellant had made numerous unsubstantiated allegations of wrongdoing on the part of various governmental officials " she had presented no evidence to contradict the undisputed fact that the vehicle was unregistered and that she had failed to pay the resulting fine. This pro se appeal followed.

Although appellant renews the various unsubstantiated allegations of conspiracy and misconduct raised below, she makes no showing of error in the court' s decision and order. Accordingly, we discern no basis to disturb the judgment. See Chittenden Solid Waste Dist. v. Hinesburg Sand & Gravel Co., 169 Vt. 153, 162 (1999) (Court need not search for errors not supported by argument or pointed out in record).

Affirmed.
