My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Washington
I got speeding citation in the city of Raymond, WA. I contested the hearing and the timeline are as follows:
Cited on 5/28/2017.
I sent the ticket back with the intention of contesting on 6/9/2017.
I received the notice of hearing dated 6/13/2017.
The scheduled hearing date: 6/26/2017.
As per the rule 2.6 (a) 1,
Except as provided in sections (1)(i) and (ii), upon receipt of a response submitted pursuant to
rule 2.4(b)(2), the court shall schedule a hearing to determine whether the defendant committed the infraction.
The hearing shall be scheduled for not less than 14 days from the date the written notice of hearing is sent
by the court, nor more than 120 days from the date of the notice of infraction or the date a default judgment
is set aside.
So can I file a motion to dismiss my case based on rule 2.6 (d) and 2.6 (f)?
Thanks a bunch.
P.S. They scheduled the hearing so fast that I don't even have enough time to request for discovery. Can this also be ground for dismissal?
FYI, I got 2 tickets in 2016. One for speeding and one for discovery pass violation; I won both.
