Questions Resolved Against Government Cite?
- Thursday 29 October 2009
I have an appeal going against the Illinois Toll
Authority, where the goofy administrative rep
said the fine was in "Canadian dollars" when I
pressed him to tell me what kind of dollars.
In the adminstrative review, the state's atty
pleading clarified the judgment amount, "clearly
meant to be in US Dollars," which do not circulate
in this country, either.
There is a quote from a case that says any
unresolved questions are to be resolved against
the gov't, if anyone has it handy.

Gould v Gould, 245 US 151, 153
"In the interpertation of statutes levying taxes,
it is the established rule not to extend their
provisions, by implication, beyond the clear import
of the language used, or to enlarge their operations
so as to embrace matters not specifically pointed out.
In case of doubt they are construed most strongly
against the government and in favor of the citizen."
