CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A Charleston attorney went to the West Virginia Supreme Court to contest a $25 parking ticket.
Timothy N. Barber argued he was improperly ticketed for leaving his vehicle in a no-parking zone while he delivered a prescription to a colleague. He left the vehicle idling while he delivered the prescription, and contended he was not parking but unloading, which is permitted in the spot he parked.
Barber's appeal of the fine was rejected by Kanawha County Circuit Court. The court concluded he did not have the required permit for loading and unloading.
He then appealed to the Supreme Court.
But the State Journal (http://bit.ly/1lGpFI8 ) reports that the court denied his appeal in a memorandum decision.
