Adam is the man, he’s had several tickets kicked out in California, this is the latest. So far we’ve got a good record of having tickets thrown out in the NSP parking ticket study, so we have evidence there is obvious merit to the tactic of challenging the facts the code is applicable. This is also evidence, despite the harsh criticism in the past, there’s merit to challenging government attacks on standing, cause of action and lack of a true adversary.
But when you look at the critics, they at best, are giving a free pass to those men/women calling themselves governments. As with standing, that is not my rule, that is political public relations, sacred writ called “law”. There are no exceptions to this, either there is a valid cause of action or there isn’t. If there isn’t, there is no jurisdiction. There are no exceptions because the plaintiff is called the “STATE”. This is laid out in detail in my standing cross reference.
And while this may have been “just” a traffic ticket, the same issues apply. The code still has to be applicable, there still needs to be a valid cause of action/case and there still needs to be a true adversary. Anytime the predators don’t get compliance and our money is a good thing.
So congrats again to Adam for not just laying down and taking it. If you’re interested in participating in the No State Project traffic study, feel free to contact me and call the show.
