My question involves a traffic citation from the state of: California
A friend of mine gave me permission to long-term park in the lot of their house. My car was later towed by other residents of the house because they didn't know who the car belonged to. It cost me almost $500 to get my car back from the towing company--can I (legally) ask them to pay at least part of the bill? After all, it was a private lot, so they are allowed to tow other cars.
