I got a ticket for driving around a tow truck/fireman. The judges asked the officer how he came up with this. He said the dash board won’t give him other options or button on the computer so he mocked up something and the judge dismissed it. Now I was out town working and therefore I couldn’t make it back on my court hearing because of many snow storm flight delays which my second option was to surrender to the ticket and just pay the fine. But kid you not. It was mandatory for me to show for court. It cost me 1338 round trip to come back for court. And lost my job. But then I got rehired and while sitting here waiting for trial since I got drugged back mandatory. I couldn’t even go back when my job rehired me. 2 months I was down 30k for a contract job. And I lost my whole life to these officers. This month will be my last month in considering that I would like to ask the court to reimburse me some how. Will I have a fighting chance?
Law enforcement likely has immunity in such situations. You may want to still contact one of the TV lawyers. They seem to represent that they can win for you with just one call. I would suggest that you insist to speak to a real lawyer, not a call screener.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
Your case was dismissed on a technicality. For a malicious act you have to be able to prove a great deal more than court appearances were required. If you have more contact a plaintiff's lawyer.
