My question is related to California, County of Los Angeles, Pomona Courth North. I am new at this and really appreciate your help.
I have a 22349(A) VC citation. I lost the TBD. I have just filed a trial de novo. I took a day off work yesterday and went to court to ask to see the statement from the CHP officer but the clerk said he does not have the information. The clerk said the CHP officer does not have to file a statement for the judge to rule me guilty in a TBD. My first question is does anyone know if this is correct? I would have thought that the case should be dismissed if the CHP did not file a statement.
I kept on asking the clerk if there is a chance that the statement is available elsewhere. He said that I would have to file a supeno to get the information. I have read somewhere on this forum that people said do not file a supeno, but go with an information discovery file to the DA instead. I am sorry if it is a trivia question, but my second question is that what are the key differences between a supeno and an information discovery request, and what are the risk of filing a supeno, or filing both?
Also where may I find out who was the judge that ruled my TBD case?
Thank you so much for your help. This is so stressful as I am not familiar with any of these issues. It is also so scary to go to court or any authority, as they just seem so intimidating. I know that I did not speed and probably should just forget about this ticket as it is just money, but it seems so wrong.
