    Default Can You Get a Ticket Dismissed if the Hearing is Scheduled for the Wrong Year

    My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Blaine

    Got a traffic ticket, contested ticket and requested discovery
    I received my discovery documents and the date on the notice of case setting is set in the past
    Traffic ticket date: March 11, 2018
    Date to appear in Court: June 20, 2017
    Is this enough for dismissal?

    If you want to roll the dice and see how that works out for you, especially after June 21, 2018, then knock yourself out. You will likely get a notice of correction in the mail with the correct year.

    There is no such state. We only deal with US law here.

    Can it be looked up online? If yes, and it shows there as dismissed, you're good. In any other case, including it being active with the wrong date, assume it's June 20, 2018, and act accordingly.

    I think highwayman was being funny. Trying, at least.

    I typo of a date is not generally enough for a dismissal.

    It would also not be wise to count on the judge understanding why you missed the June 20 2018 date should you think about trying that.

    I understood Highwaymans humor.

    The first letter I received (before requesting discovery) had May 9, 2018 for Court day... so maybe wise to show up next week.

    The cop wrote the wrong date on my ticket (Sunday).... then sent a letter with the correct date a week later.
