Last January of 2009, I was cited for speeding. In March of 2009, I had my hearing and moved for a deferred dismissal of the ticket. It was granted and I was told it would not show up on my record. However, the court made a mistake, which I had no idea of until earlier last month (March).
Early March of 2010, I received a letter from my insurance saying that they were raising my insurance because of the ticket. They found out about this because the court filed my ticket as committed instead of deferred dismissal (not what they were supposed to do). Over the past month, I have been running around from the Department of Licensing, my insurance company, the municipal court of the town I live in, and have been on the phone with the state office of the Department of Licensing trying to get this fixed.
I've incurred stress, monetary costs (paying for motor vehicle records from the Department of Licensing), and have spent tons of time waiting in lines to talk to various officials trying to get this fixed, on top of having a tainted record with my insurance company. Since this entire fiasco is no fault of mine and is completely on the shoulders of the court, I would like to sue the state of Washington. I cannot sue the State in small claims court - they make that clear on their website.
How can I bring suit against the State in this case? Any help is greatly appreciated.
