I have a question about the filing of a motion for new

I have a question about the filing of a motion for new trial. Noticed in the iowa code that a motion for new trial can be filed for up to 2 yrs after final judgment for discovery of new evidence not available at time of trial. My question is about the date the 2 yrs starts. Is it from the date the District Court Judge gave final judgment or if it was appealed does that time start from the date the Appeals Court entered the Procenedo?

My wife got a ticket for failure to yield to a pedestrian. I told her to reschedule the court date, and go to court if the cop does show what should she say to get the ticket knocked out or down. She has no other tickets before.

I got a citation for following too closely recently, already

I got a citation for following too closely recently, already had 3 points due to a rolling stop, I was given a drunk driving series of tests only had 4 drinks in the course of 2.5 hours, should I say guilty or not guilty?JA: What state was the citation in? And have you consulted a local attorney?Customer: State of pa, not yet but I feel that I would get worse punishment because the officer gave me a breathalyzer.

I am a resident of South Carolina. I got a traffic ticket in

Hi, I am a resident of South Carolina. I got a traffic ticket in Florida in July. I elected to attend traffic school, and paid my fine on 8/11/16. On the receipt for the fine, it states "You are also required to provide proof of school completion to the Clerk's office within 90 days of today's date."I completed traffic school and uploaded the certificate of completion on 11/11/16, 3 months from the date I paid my fine. Now the clerk's office in Florida is refusing to accept the certificate because there were 31 days in August and October. In my head, I had 90 days as being 3 months out - I know this is the norm in the Accounting world.I am going to write a letter to the judicial officer to ask if he will accept my certificate. What should I say in my letter? I know the accident was my fault, and I accept responsibility for it. I worked hard at traffic school and learned a lot. I believe I did what was required of me and would like to present my case without sounding defensive. Any tips you can give would be appreciated.
