We are being sued for $1000 in California, for our dog getting out and killing 18 chickens. We were cited for dog at large, dog trespass, dog trespass with livestock. The owner of the chickens is in...
So you're saying the lady who is suing you was in violation of city ordinance? If that's the case then I wouldn't sweat it too much. Just make sure you collect all the information and evidence showing she was in violation.
There's a legal maxim, almost as old as law itself, "Wrong doers may not benefit from wrongdoing."
Just research, present all your evidence, and cite the codes and maxims. Courts don't like to waste time or resources, so be prepared with everything (i.e. photos, law, code, times and dates) and be on time. The more you can show the better.
You don't need to waste your time or money on an attorney if you can read. It's just municipal code. Some people may not be comfortable or confidant in their ability to read and understand code, and if that's the case then by all means, do what makes you comfortable.
But if you can handle reading I'm sure you can handle this. If it was securities litigation that would be a different matter.
By the way... don't park in wrong in the wrong spot. Yes, parking in the wrong spot "can and will" get your car confiscated. That's what cities and tow companies do. Yes, just because your car is in the wrong ******* spot, it can be confiscated. It happens everyday. They even made a show about it called parking wars.
Just research the law & use common sense. Then you can decide the best course of action.
