A-1’s second 30-day suspension was reversed within hours


A-1’s second 30-day suspension earlier this month was reversed within hours of the initial verdict without explanation, putting the company back in business in spite of numerous complaints.  

Memphis officials voted unanimously to suspend A-1’s Towing permit for 30 days on March 7th, citing ordinance violations in regards to towing and storage fees. 

This action would have marked the second suspension for the company in the last six months. However, a judge reversed the 30-day suspension against A1’s Xclusive Auto by granting a stay in Shelby County Chancery Court, reported ABC 24

A-1’s CEO issued the following statement regarding the brief suspension and immediate reversal: 

“Three days ago, [the city] threatened to arrest us with valid license, saying we didn’t have right to tow/boot no matter what a judge said. We’ve tried to talk to the tow board and [provide] video proof of what we deal with along with trying to talk to council. I’ve been trying to compromise with the city this whole time, they haven’t thus far, and I won’t be bullied nor stand for them [to] treat me differently simply because I’m a minority business owner.”
