i had a court trial in front of a "referee" in hennepin county 4th judicial district coiurt. it was for a petty misdomenor traffic violation, disobeying a traffic control sign. being a single drive of a tow truck entering the H.O.V. lane to pick up a stranded vehicle. the referee almost apologetically entered a guilty finding because he could not find where the statute specifically allowed a tow truck to do an emergency pickup. he again stated, "i find you did nothing wrong and believe there was a stranded vehicle, but i cannot find anywhere in the statute that specifically states a tow truck is an authorized vehicle or that you had been authorized by any authority (i.e police, fire, state patrol)." i have since found language from MN D.O.T. that i believe clarifies tow trucks are allowed to enter to do such emergency services. can i approach the referee or court to ask to reconsider based on the newly discovered information or am i forced to file an appeal? can i seek this reconsideration from "judge" or chief judge??
