I contested a speeding ticket in California Superior Court. During the hearing phase the Judge made me a plea down offer to which I chose to turn down and continue (immediately) to the trial phase. The officer claimed his Radar was last calibrated in August 2009 by San Diego State University. I understand California Law requires calibration every 3 years so o.k. fine. I then asked the officer for documentation (proof) in writing and he couldn't provide it. Based on lack of foundational evidence I made a motion for the case to be dismissed. The Judge would not act on my motion and told me that the officers word on the calibration issue was good enough. He also told me I needed to ask for that documentation in discovery and was I asking for a continuance. I said no and repeated my request for motion to dismiss, and I stated since the entire case was predicated on the radars accuracy the officer should have known full well that this issue could come up in court. He again ignored my motion and did not act on it and found me guilty. My question is whether it is called discovery or something else was I REALLY required to file something in advance to require the officer to provide this document, or is the judge merely covering for him. I want to know if I have grounds to appeal based on this issue of the radar certification.
