I just got a notice of suspension (imminent in 30 days) for FLD ANSWER SUMMONS for a 1180A speed ticket from several years ago. I entered a not guilty plea in person to the court on the ticket and have never heard or received anything from them since, I was waiting for a court date all this time. As instructed by the notice, I am going to the court tomorrow to sort things out, what should I expect? If this is a clerical error of some sort, is there a case for dismissal? Otherwise can I get a new court date, even if somehow I was convicted and yet never notified about anything of this which I doubt?

    You likely will be able to clear the imminent suspension and get a new court date. Good luck!

    Lynn Brown,

    You should plead not guilty as this is the only way to possibly obtain a more favorable outcome.
