Clipper Card Reader Tagged the Wrong Time?

A few weeks ago my wife and a friend of ours boarded Muni at about 5:45 p.m. in the Inner Sunset. When they got off at Civic Center a little after 6 p.m., they were stopped by fare inspectors who scanned their Clipper cards. It was then that they were told the system registered them having boarded at 4 p.m., and that they’d be issued a ticket for riding with an expired fare.
Their well-documented petition was denied, and to even fight it they have to pay the $103 fine.
If this has happened to you, were you able to petition the ticket? Let us know what happened.
