Genuinely curious, as I'm no lawyer.
the speeding notes are likely in the deposition. remember, you still are on the hook for speeding - you disobeyed the sign with the max speed posted on it. it's just that he decided to give you a break, that's all.
I see no fault with trying to plead it down - you still get penalized and they still get paid (and save judge's time). Not to mention the fact that a lot of speeding tickets are nothing but a revenue generator for the municipality..
