If found liable, the Judge may assess court costs and fines. State law mandates that courts collect a State Litigation Tax on all cases that are litigated. The state determined that a case is litigated when the defendant is found liable or guilty. The state-mandated litigation tax is currently $13.75 and is to be paid in addition to any court costs and fines assessed by the Municipal Court Judge. Payment for court costs, fines and the state-mandated litigation tax are to be paid within ten (10) days after your scheduled court date.
Court costs are typically assessed at $100 and remain at the Judge’s discretion. Fines for ordinance violations may be up to $50/day for every day that the violation exists. Automated traffic enforcement (red light camera) violations have a civil penalty of $50 per violation.
All court costs and fines for ordinance violations are to be paid to the Town of Farragut and can be paid in person or by mail at the Farragut Town Hall, 11408 Municipal Center Drive, Farragut, TN 37934. The civil penalty for automated traffic enforcement violations is to be paid to Redflex and can be paid online at www.photonotice.com or in person or by mail at the Pine Ridge Office Complex, 706 S Illinois Ave, Suite D103, Oak Ridge, TN 37830.
Anyone cited to appear before the Municipal Court may present his/her own case before the judge unless the defendant is a corporation or limited liability company. This includes the right to present witnesses, documents, and other relevant evidence. The retention or use of any attorney is up to the discretion of the cited party. If the named defendant is a corporation or limited liability company, that legal entity must be represented by an attorney if it is to appear before the court.
