The offense occurred in 2007. All fines were paid, courses attended, and suspensions imposed were served. Is there a limit on when I could have to do something different with this? Is there a statute of limitations for them revisiting it?
This does not make sense. Procedendo is a writ from a higher court ordering a lower court to render a judgment, when...
