Sammy Ray v. Mississippi Department of Public Safety will be heard at 9:00 a.m. August 5, 2014, in the Court of Appeals. Ray was fired for writing and then voiding four warning tickets. He claims this was a practice he learned during MDPS training and that almost all troopers do it. MDPS claims this was the writing of “ghost tickets” done merely to bolster the officer’s workl performance.
