My question involves traffic court in the State of: California
Got a speeding ticket (84 on 65). I plead not guilty on 2/27/14 and got a trial date for 4/9/14. However I got a letter (copy) in the mail from CHP office for the officer to postpone trial date (form RI-TR002) in which he indicates that he will be on vacation on 4/9/14 and that he will be available any time after 4/14/14 which is beyond the 45 days. I know I have the right to a speedy trial, which means the court has to handle my case within 45 days. At the bottom of the form, under "Intructions to Defendant" it mentions that I have 5 days to object to the officers request by filing form RI-TR003 "Objection to pospone of traffic court trial.
My question is: 1) Does the simple fact that it's beyond the 45 days, can I use that (right to speedy trial) to object to his request and get it dismissed? or 2) Do I have to include another reason as to why I object to the officer's request and if so, what could be acceptable to the court as a legitimate reason, and be able to get my citation dismissed? Thanks in advance.
