      My Response: A person can demand their rights until they turn blue. When you are in a kangaroo court, it does not matter. Especially when there is no recorder to verify action and deed. Yes, someone could have been taking notes but how many friends do you have that would take off work for you when they would not do it for themselves. If you have been to traffic court then you also know that the only person, as a defendant, that knows even half of what is going on is YOU! The rest are clueless.

      My Response: I definitely was not looking for sympathy. How is anyone supposed to understand a situation unless it is explained by the one who went through it. That is all I was doing. My case is over. It is done. I just wanted to use my experience to help others. I spent literally a dozen hours or more on reading posts from this group and my own study of state traffic law and ways to beat traffic violations. In no way would most posts from this group help a person to defend themselves in a Florida traffic court. YES, bits and pieces helped. BUT, I had to wade through 5 feet of mud (filter out what did and did not apply to Florida Traffic Laws. We can continue as we are in this forum, concerning traffic citations, and continue to wade through the mud to filter
      what applies to "my" state, or we can use common sense and find common ground.

      > In re: "There still must be a valid cause of action."
      My Response: According to the judge, NOT IN FLORIDA. You have been issued with a civil "INFRACTION" and the requirements for an Article 3 lawsuit DOES NOT APPLY.

      > In re: to "looking for a silver bullet?"
      My Response: YES, if I want to make it to the moon, I SHOOT FOR THE STARS. You are correct in stating that "there is no silver bullet." But I will set my goals high and know that I did the best I could because I aimed for the impossible and fough to achieve it.

      Your comments are understood but they are also idealistic. In a fantasy world where everything is on the up and up it would be guaranteed to work, if presented properly, because the surroundings are unbiased. IF the judges and courts were honest and impartial we would not have to be fighting for our rights to begin with. This country was founded upon the acknowledgement of fundamental rights, WITHOUT those rights having to be proven or fought for. You have rightly insinuated that the courts today demand that we prove our rights. But you seem to fail to see the fact that since they are unjustifiably demanding proof of our rights then they are already corrupt enough to deny us those rights, even WHEN we can prove that we have them. YES, we should still fight for and continue to stand up for our rights. But to judge a person in the way that it appears that I have been judged, when only a very small portion of a scenario has been given, is placing one on the same level as a judge who makes his decision solely on the "testimony" of an officer, when the defendant has given contrary testimony (not guilty). That is what being biased is. Making a decision, not based on hard evidence, but on the sole verbal testimony of one over the other. In any other court of law, that would be a "he said, she said" case. CASE DISMISSED. But many states have claimed they have found a way around Article 3 requirements for a "civil" suit. Florida is one of them and a TRAFFIC COURT does not have the authority to overturn a state law. They have renamed the charge as a "civil infraction" and have declared that Article 3 does not apply!!! According to the traffic judge, a traffic court only has the authority to UPHOLD the law as it is written.
