    Default Required to Contact Court to See if Officer Has Filed the Ticket

    My question involves traffic court in the State of: California

    I appear to court on date and time that ticket said to.
    Officer has not filed paper work so I have to call back every two weeks for up to ten months to see if he has.
    If he does not file paper work by a year after ticket - it is voided.
    Is this legal? Because If I did not show up to court on that date or before I would have received a Failure To Appear on my record and had to pay a fine of over $1200.

    Default Re: Officer Hasnt Filed Paperwork

    Yes, it is (sorry to say). You could have motioned to dismiss the case at that time. No guarantees if would be granted but you could have tried.
