Yes. You can sue them for the forgery. You will have to prove who exactly did the forgery which may prove to be difficult.
Your damages are $37.82. So I would not expect an attorney to take the case on a contingency fee. You will have to do the cost-benefit analysis yourself.

Generally, a person has to pead guilty or "no contest" (which is the same thing as pleading guilty) in order for them to be placed on probation. And if you pleaded either of those, I'd say you are really out of luck. Then I would ask why you would do such a thing knowing you were not... Read more »
