My question involves traffic court in the State of Washington, Renton
Here is my situation:
- I have received a speeding ticket for 59 in 40 mile zone in between Issaquah and Renton on 02.01.2011;
- The next day (02.02.2011) I mailed the form with the "contested hearing" box checked;
- I had never heard anything from the court until 05.21.2011, when I received a notice of hearing dated 05.19.2011; The hearing date is set for 06.01.2011, which does not give me any time to request discovery or do anything.
- Since it obviously took them more than 21 days to send me the notice, can I ask for the case to be dismissed based on rule2.6.a.4
" The infraction may be dismissed upon a showing of
prejudice if the court does not send a defendant written notice
of a hearing within 21 days of receipt of the request for a hearing"
Do I have grounds for this case to be dismissed and how I should go about it?
