My question involves court procedures for the state of: New York, Kings County
Last Fri my car was towed from the street that did nit have any parking restrictions nor there where any pending tikets on my car. Today I won the case in traffic violation court - judge stated that tiket is dismmised. and I will be refunded $60 of the tiket face value... but I paid $185. Apperantly taw fee is not refundable even if NYPD had no right to touch my car.
So I want to sue NYC for:
Demage that was done during car towing - $270 (got recipt from repair shop)
Towing Fee - $125
Lost Time - 4 hours to get car back, 4 hours in cort to fight tiket = ~$200 (is that reasobable?)
Moral demage - $XXX
Anyting esle I can sue the city for? I feel that if we meke mistates city penilize us alot in terms of $$$ but if city makes mistates they get away so i want to get max compensation for myself but i'm not 100% sure how can i apply concept of punitive demages to my case.. im comming mostly from the business law prespective
I would appreciate any help!
Thanks a lot!
