What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Louisiana.
I was issued a parking ticket for failure to pay the meter at a private lot in Baton Rouge. The issuer scrawled a note on the ticket that s/he "Told to pay. Kept walking," but neither my companion nor I heard or noticed anyone at any time when we were at the lot. Also, neither of us realized it was a private lot (probably irrelevant). The fine is $50 "if paid within TEN days," which is tomorrow. An attorney-friend told me the worst that could happen might be demerits to my credit score. How much could it lower my score? Do private lots have any other powers? Should I just pay the fine?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
