Noticed, in Sunday’s Mercury, a number of court filings that were listed as “U.S.A. vs. xxx”.  A number of these were DUI, driving while revoked, etc.  Why are traffic cases tried on the federal level?  I always thought traffic citations were handled on the Municipal Court or District Court level.

Larry,
Could be post related.  I know in the past if you received a citation on the premises of the fort.  You had to go to federal court.
