Issued a bogus parking ticket (parking attendant gave an unwarranted citation to collect parking fees.) There is clear and convincing evidence that no law or ordinance was violated. Questioned attendant, couldn't give me reason for citation. However, I have to wasted much time and money to gather my prove -on top of - have to go to a court hearing to be found not guilty. As pro se, I want to be reimbursed for discovery time, court fees, parking fee, copies of material evidence and expenses for preparation of hearing. It has been a financial burden -money I would have never spent if I was not issued bogus citation. Can I request reimbursement from Judge in traffic court?
