I have a history of light hurting my eyes and not being able to fully open my eyes on a sunny day, or even keeping the lights in my home at maximum brightness.

You may have to sue the dealer for breach of contract. The dealer may not have owned the car in the first place. You probably cannot apply for the lost title either. If a used car dealer, you may be able to make a claim with the State Regulatory Agency against their Bond.
I am unaware of which specific Constitutional right you are referring to. Assuming you mean to invoke the 4th Amendment right against unreasonable searches and seizures. I am unaware of any precedent that states citizens are not required to produce identification when requested to do so. 4th...Read more »
Not sure of your problem. But you need to try to get the License at another DOS facility. Otherwise you will need a very competent, and expensive, attorney to file an administrative action.

You will have to provide the State the requested documents. The Department of Safety issues the HCP, and if they do not want to, they don't. If denied, you can file a declaratory action in General Sessions Court very soon after the denial. Denial of a HCP does not mean you necessarily...Read more »
