Short story, I got a ticket. I paid the fine the day it was due. The county didn’t notify the state and my license was suspended. Pulled over, and almost booked but got a ride home and a court date instead. On the day of court I had enough paperwork to prove to prosecutor that indeed the original tickets fine was paid. The prosecutor dropped my driving with suspended license and left me with court fees for the days work. Went down town to pay court fees which coincidentally were the exact same amount as if I had been fined for driving while suspended.

I wouldn't say I "won" but I did fight it and they dropped the wrongful charge. Technically everyone involved lost IMHO.

AA (Stock/Bond/Cash ): 90/0/10% MIX (Small/Mid/Large): X/Y/Z% BLEND(US/Foreign): 100/0%, (Value/Growth/Blend): X/X/X% REIT (Real Estate Equity): X% of Assets

FIRE in 2031 @ 50yrs old (+/- 2yrs) w/ a hypothetical $3.5mil portfolio, 3 appreciated homes worth $1.0mil and rental income to fund my gap years until RMD. Assets will go to an inherited IRA where I plan on watching the investments grow until I die or the trust gets executed.

So you had to pay court fees because the county didn't notify the state that you paid the ticket? Did you object?

If something cannot endure laughter.... it cannot endure.
Patience is the art of concealing your impatience.
