Now will the City of Cornersville do the right thing and give those people their money back?
If did any admit, they wrote speeding tickets outside of where they were suppost too, like that rest area on I-65?
Will they do the right thing now and Give the people their money back, like did the Lewisburg Electric Company did with the city of Lewisburg for over charging for street lights for 6 or 7 years?

The way the system works, anyone who was written a ticket in that area may chose to reclaim however, to do so would take time, lawyers and money.(Current tickets yet resolved, if any, could get a dismissal, but again, they would have to come to court). However, should there be a class action lawsuit, only the lawyers would benefit from this, and Cornersville could go into the red ink for a very long time. It could also force taxes to greatly increase to offset that loss. Let's just hope this closes another torrid chapter in Cornerville's ugly past.

As a side note, anyone who might have been written a ticket over 16mph (considered reckless driving incurring higher insurance premiums) may choose to fight to get those tickets expunged.

A class "action lawsuit" now thats a idea! Even if the Lawyer got the money! Would it teach those who allowed the people robbed, not to do that ever again?
Would Cornersville's insurance company cover the loss?

Why don't they just do the right thing and give all those people their money back for they do have records don't they?
Won't the towns insurance cover the costs of those lets say mistakes?

Talk about going to Court! Do some speed trap towns, even the tickets that get dismissed, those who go to court still have to pay court costs and can those court costs be sometimes more than the tickets themselves?
Do some towns not even show any records of those court costs or the tickets?

Oh that is being examined as we type.

Attorney Rob Dalton has been contacted by motorists about tickets written by town police, he said Friday. Saturday, Mayor Amos (real name, no sh!t) Davis said town officers stopped - sometime in the last few months - using the truckers' rest stop on I-65 as a place to conduct radar patrols to find speeding drivers.

Dalton and his paralegal associate, Jeff Payne, have been at Cornersville Town Hall in recent days this month with a portable electronic scanner to copy police tickets, Dalton and Davis said. Dalton praises town officials for their cooperation, openness and adherence to Tennessee's open records law.

It is not about deservance, it is about obey the law on all sides. Even the Law is not above it and should suffer consequences just like others. Consequence of speeding is a ticket, consequence of writing a ticket out of jurisdiction is dismissal. Take you whiny, belly aching somewhere else where someone cares about it.

Is what wrong with the country? Does it seem do some small town city officials or any police think they can operate outside the law and get by with it for years?
Don't the City of Cornersville have insurance that will cover the costs of paying the lawyers and all those people tickets and court cost, ticket money, back if it was admited to by any city official as just a mistake?
Will that help those if responsible from going to jail or getting a reduced time behind bars?

Don't forget to get the court costs back also?

Does this mean that if a state trooper is at MM 26 and involved in a shooting that Cornersville police cant go and assist. Even if they are a half mile away. The tropper could be out there for 30 minutes before another trooper arrives. Man we got to think about this. I hope that if I have problems out on the interstate and a cornersville cop is close they would help me anyway. No matter what the law says.

Speeding is not an emergency. There is nothing to think about.

This city administrator has broken this town with greed. Nothing will be an excuse to make it right.

The city has broken the law and will have to pay back every dime. Once the court says it was against the law, they should be kicked off there forever.

Btw. Coopertown, They had to pay back every dime. I think I smell a storm brewing. Don't know where our city is getting legal advice. If its from a law student on staff or a city attorney, we need to do better. We have followed them off a cliff.

If they are made to not go on the interstate could they refuse all interstate assistance?

No. Assistance between departments have no lines, but that assistance is normally requested.

Don't the Interstate have the State Troopers, EMS, and the County so why would any town police wants to respond?
Due to the liablity issue placed on that town, if they did respond?

Because in time of need, it is the right thing to do. All official emergency responders in MC are insured. If an accident were to occur and a closer unit can respond with life saving assistance they will do just that.

Just like citizens who render help when in need, Tennessee will give immunity to those who render aid, even if the person dies because of it.
"...if the law will not make us do the right thing in an emergency, it at least tries to encourage us to do so, by giving us immunity from liability so long as we do not act with “gross negligence.” In Tennessee, that law is known as the “Good Samaritan Law,”

The city attorney for Cornersville is Quinn Brandon Stewart, the sister of the town manager Taylor Brandon. Was told the judge for the city of Cornersville is the man who has the law office just below Bradon's Law office in Lewisburg. Does this seem as if it "all in the family".

Wonder if papa bear takes cases of out of state tickets for a small fee to get them off. I'd bet on it. Probably gets a referral.

Would then any person or any police department be given immunity from any liability, if any listened to the ambulance, police radios, or scanner then responded without being requested to any or all calls on I-65?
