Worth Fighting a Violation Not Counted in SMS?

    So months ago I received a violation but no citation. I’m seeing right now that while the violation does appear on my CSA report, it also states that it is “not included in SMS calculation.” Should I fight it through DataQ, or let it go because it would make no difference?

    CSA - Measure

    But since it's just a cvsa violation and not a citation courts don't matter as it can not be brought to court.

    I understand. But in my county court is closed. As in shut, locked, lights off. NO actions planned civil or criminal until at least Apr 15, which may be postponed into May if need be.

    Now there is a detail I have not considered. Story of my life minor details.

    There would be a awful lot of people from those infectious ridden jails looking for a lift. Nice.
