Re: California Traffic Courts: Change of Venue or Demurrer First
(1) Actually, they are important... The nature of the defect does give rise to whether you can demur or not, and if you cannot, then a demurrer is out of the question and you're only dealing with the uphill battle of a change of venue.
(2) I'm not getting the part about it being a "substantial defect" and yet it is just a "typographical error"... Typos can be easily corrected and have very little impact, if any, on your ability to defend yourself as compared to a substantial error which may require the citation to be reissued/refiled.
So why don't you share with us what the error is?
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
