In other words, the statement indicates that "the Officer failed to demonstrate that the laser was recently calibrated or that he had any knowledge regarding the proper testing and calibration of the instrument. Based on this failure, it is likely the laser was not recently calibrated so as to accurately detect my vehicle’s speed."
Did you actually request this from the Officer? I am curious b/c I am trying to write up a Trial by Written Declaration. Thanks Kobaiyashi!!!
My assumption is that the officer did not respond at all, which is how most of these written by declarations' cases are dismissed. If at the time of the citation the officer failed to show you the calibration data, he would not have given out the ticket at all. If you did not mention to see the data at the time of the citation, you would have to file Motion of Discovery after the citation.
