My city just had a muni code ruled uncon. What would happen if I kept writing tickets based on it?
The city is wisely rewriting the law rather than telling me to keep writing.
That is not even close to the same. It required no action at all, once it was ruled in violation of the state or federal constitution, it just doesn't exist anymore. If they rewrite it, that is their decision.
How would the sheriff force to city council to appropriate money? I mean physically force them to do it? How does it happen, does he go take a check from the treasurer and write it himself?
Would he arrest anyone who didn't vote the way a court ruled?
Would be arrest them and then hold them until they agreed to vote a certain way?
