Judge: GDCt not place for ‘fees’ challenge

Henrico General District Judge Archer L. Yeatts III today rejected an attempt to challenge Virginia’s new scheme of “abusive driver” fees, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Yeatts ruled that a general district court didn’t have the jurisdiction to stop the fees, which took effect July 1 and establish harsher financial penalty for certain traffic offenses.

Richmond lawyers Craig Cooley and Esther Windmueller, who put together the challenge, said they would make their motions in circuit court later this week.
