Now, a year later, CaseNet continues to say 'case with PA'. Is this beyond the statute of limitations? When I called the court they said if there is no new date in a year I can forget about the ticket. True?
Not necessarily. The Prosecutor has 1 year from the date of the incident to file the charge. It is possible that the Prosecutor filed the charge within the 1-year statute of limitations, but the court clerk just hasn't set the case on a docket and notified you of the court date yet. If that...Read more »

I have got a speeding ticket on April 2020 and was ready to pay for it as soon as it shows up on case.net. But it's been more than a year and the status stays "Case is still with PA". How long should I wait before it gets updated?

If it says "Case is still with PA" that means the Prosecutor has filed the charge but the court clerk has...Read more »

No, this case is not going to be dismissed because of statute of limitations. For misdemeanors, the Prosecutor has 1 year from the date of the incident to file charges. In this case, it sounds like the Prosecutor filed the charge well within the 1-year statute of limitations.
