My question involves traffic court in the State of: WA, Snohomish County
I plan on using the IRLJ 6.6 defense based on the fact that the 2 certificates filed into WA courts do not state that the SMD experts on the certificates were present or even supervised the calibration and testing of the SMDs. Also, the specific LIDAR unit that was used in my case was certified by someone with initals 'GWH' and there is no certificate for that name. Can I file pretrial motions?
My court date is April 1st. I would like to not have to go to court, but don't want to do a hearing by mail. I want to move to suppress the SMD because of failure to certify and then move for dismissal because of lack of evidence. How can I do this? Do I have to go to court or can this be done by mail? If I have to go to court, how do I present them.
Thanks so much
