68 Questions Answered
- Q. In Michigan, can you file a motion to set aside a default and a motion for summary disposition at the same time?
- A: I agree with Mr. Harris. After a default is entered, even if a default judgment has not, the defaulted party (you) may not take any other action until the default is set aside. You can file the motion, but its not authorized. And, if you file a motion for summary disposition at the same time, the court will probably ignore it, but the other party may feel like they cannot ignore it and may, to protect their client, either file a motion to strike your pleading or file a response to your motion. Either way, your action has caused them to take legal action and incur legal fees because you filed a motion that was not yet permitted. They would be justified in asking the court to strike your motion and award them the costs they incurred due to your action. Don't do it.
- Q. I illegally got pulled over
- A: It is nearly impossible to "prove" that you were pulled over illegally. Don't waste your time. You will irritate the court and harm your case. All police need is "reasonable suspicion" that a traffic offense could be occurring to pull you over for a brief investigation. Regarding your tinted windows. Michigan law prohibits tinted windows in the front windshield or side windows. There are two exceptions: a tinted film is allowed along the top edge of the windshield and the side windows as long as it does not extend more than 4 inches from the top of the windshield, nor lower than the shade band, whichever is closer to the top of the windshield, and if lower than that, you are ok so long as the tint is not more than 35% or more in the visible light range. If your tint covers the full window, then you would have to prove that the tint was not more than 35%. You will have to figure out how to prove that. Regarding insurance. If you did not have a valid and active policy, you lose. If you had a value policy at the time of the ticket, but didn't have the certificate with you, set the matter for a Formal Hearing. Then, BEFORE the appearance date listed on the citation, contact the Court, and submit (in-person or mail, or fax, if permitted) a copy of the proof of insurance to the court. If you do that, the law states that the court shall not assess a fine or costs, nor forward the ticket to the secretary of state, but the court may assess a fee of not more than $25.00, which shall be paid to the court funding unit. As always, I recommend that you hire an attorney to represent you.
- Q. Is it illegal to pull over right before the top of a hill, forcing the drivers to go into the other lane trying to pass?
- A: There is no statute that states that pulling over is illegal. It's the manner in which you park that may cause an unsafe condition and justify a ticket. You have to pull off the road completely. You may not impede or block traffic in your lane. Vehicles are not required to, nor should they, cross a centerline, to avoid your car. If your car is off the road, they should slowly move past, without crossing the line, then proceed.
