What do I need to do for my trial date?
You must appear in court prepared to present your case to the judge. It is your responsibility to bring any documentation, witnesses, photographs, etc., that you feel is necessary to prove your case. Instructions for subpoenaing witnesses are provided by the court. The City of Brookfield has the burden of proving to the court by clear, satisfactory and convincing evidence that you are responsible for the alleged violation as stated on the citation. You may wish to consult with an attorney prior to your court trial.INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBPOENAS
