JUNCTION CITY, Kan. - A Junction City woman has taken a $55 parking ticket all the way to the Kansas Court of Appeals -- and won.
Mary Somrak got the ticket for parking over the line in her parking space at a townhome complex. Somrak said she fought the ticket through three courts and almost two years because she didn't think it was right for the city to write tickets in a private parking lot at 2 a.m. -- especially when the car she parked too close to was her own second car.
The Wichita Eagle reports Somrak also fought the ticket because her neighbors got similar tickets and many of them are military dependents..
Local courts said she didn't file her appeal notice in time, but the appeals court ruled she did.
