    What's the difference whether it's a court or some bureaucratic office? What could possibly cause fines higher than 15% of the way to the max, if not this huge violation? That is why it's safe to assume corruption. Because there is vast evidence that Florida is corrupt in precisely the way that gives old 1% citrus families a wrist slap if they're even slapped at all. In Florida the burden of proof is in the one arguing the injustice is not due to corruption.
