In Gnecchi v. State the Washington Supreme Court failed to take advantage of an opportunity to discredit the right-privilege dichotomy, a concept which the court has used in the past to determine a citizen's interest in his driver's license. The court continued to consider the driver's license a privilege which may be revoked or suspended without a hearing.
