In court one time on photo ticket charges, the defendant, who had NO
notification of the proceedings (Charge was sprung when defendant
showed for another issue) ,defendant asked the judge, "Who is this guy
bringing this evidence against me?,is he a lawyer, what's his bar
association number" ,(the guy with the laptop computer, showing what
was allegedly a film of defendant running red light)... the "judge"
(who was just a commissioner) went ballistic, yelling"shut up, shut up
now or I will put you in jail"..... guess the defendant touched a sore
spot, had he known how to bring the "judge" to heel he could have "won"
that... as it was he never paid and was never contacted again about
it.... and on the subject of tickets, I think someone here posted a
letter from Leo DeCaprios lawyers telling someone they had better cease
and desist using Leo's image for their commecial gain, as Leo had
ownership rights in his image... works for him, must work for us. Photo
ticket companys cannot use my image for their commercial gain. Cheers!
