Re: Sign Legal - California Law
I'm not sure what you mean by "do I have a case." Since this was a private property owner tow, there is no criminal violation. Do you mean do you have grounds to sue in civil court? If so, you may have grounds to recoup the towing and storage fees from the property owner.
Where did the quote you posted come from? From your rental agreement? The written authorization you posted seems to include most of what you highlighted. It includes the signature (Velazquez), the job title (officer), and the time (4-02-12 at 1548). But, it does not include the address or telephone number...although I'm betting the property owner will argue that it is posted somewhere (which does not meet the requirements of the quote you posted but might have some traction in civil court anyway).
The fact that you have a parking permit is unlikely to get any traction since you failed to display the permit. Even if the property owner has a list of vehicles assigned permits, your borrowed car obviously wouldn't be on it.
Behind the badge is a person. Behind the person is an ego. This is as it should be, person at the center and ego to the back.
