A friend has a very old speeding ticket (8+ years) that she got when she was living in Oregon. The way I understand it, it, she was mailed the ticket as it was from a van parked somewhere we think in Beaverton. Her address was her mom's home, but she is estranged from her mom and her mom never sent her the ticket. My friend is living in California. My friend makes limited income and is not going to be able to afford this ticket after 8+ years.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Oregon was where the ticket was recievedJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Other than getting a ticket, nothing has been doneJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: that is all I know at this time

Hi Lucy,Still no police report, I called the number on the card and she said that if the drivers exchanged information sometimes the officers will file a report and sometime they don't. She has no way of knowing if a report was filed.I thought if the police were on scene and interviewed both drivers that they file a report?

They first told me that the sherrifs dont wear cameras, one clerk stated it only took pictures and when i finally spoke to the traffic section they assured that they do not wear cameras.

Law Educator Only Thank you for taking the time to review my

Law Educator OnlyGood Day,Thank you for taking the time to review my queries and provide a response.I would like to file an order of protection for my witness under the guise we previously discussed (frcp rule 28).When should that be filed? Is it done before the pre trial conference?--At the pre trial conference? Do I need to attach the proof that supports my position (ie, the applicable foreign law)? What about the motion in limine, is that done prior to pre trial conference?Also I would like to file an OSC under rule 37. When is the best time to file that? Yes, I am focusing on my case; however, defense should be put on notice that be acted in bad faith.I know the court can not act on its' own, even if they are aware of the violation.As I secure the testimony of my medical witnesses, and the possibility of the Directed Verdict (I think that's it) I would like to do as much as I can to have the court rule in my favour. Therefore, with the proof that there is a violation under rule 37 that the court will be asked to address, that may be something that the court will take into consideration as a possible sanction--when they rule.Appreciate your input Law Educator! Thank you
