Cocke County Circuit Court Judge Ben Hooper said his ability to waive court costs in his Driver’s License Court – designed to help defendants who have lost their privilege to drive – has been restricted and complicated due to Tennessee legislation, WNPC reports. “We have passed so many laws that we have trapped people, and it's almost impossible for people to get their license', so I came (to court) see what we have done in Tennessee that was wrong and what we possibly could do to fix it," Rep.
