Why do Numerous firms investigate possible breaches of fiduciary duty?
Publicly traded company is selling.
If there is suit, do they all get together?

No, they all fight to be the one heading the suit.

Im trying to understand the law

http://codes.findlaw.com/ny/vehicle-and-traffic-law/vat-sect-238.html

2-a. (a) Notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of subdivision two of this section, where the plate type or the expiration date are not shown on either the registration plates or sticker of a vehicle or where the registration sticker is covered, faded, defaced or mutilated so that it is unreadable, the plate type or the expiration date may be omitted from the notice of violation;  provided, however, such condition must be so described and inserted on the notice of violation.

In a scenario where the registration was covered and the officer entered a wrong plate type will it get dismissed?

He gave 2 tickets
On parking one he didn't
on failing to display a scannable registration he did

I mean, according to the text you posted above, I would think the parking ticket should be tossed.

But since law is a prediction of how a judge will rule, knowing how NYC parking works, I would not be surprised either way.

Wrong plate type is automatic dismissal. i.e. PAS instead of SRF or COM

There are 5 statutory automatic dismissals on NYC parking violations. Wrong registration expiration date. Wrong Plate, Wrong Make, Model and wrong registration type. (This is from memory. But I believe I got them all.)

You still dont have to respond as it will never hit your plate if its the wrong plate type. If you want to be safe respond and invoke statutory automatic dismissal.

Its not in the actual statute. Its in the practice commentaries.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

What are the laws regarding salaried vs. hourly employees in NY?

Is pay allowed to be docked if I'm short on clocked hours one week?

I feel this is unfair since I will work OT on other weeks without getting the OT pay an hourly employee would get...

and the OT doesn't accrue/carry over to balance out shortages?

No.

I get 40hrs of PTO annually which I like to save for vacation/sick leave or unpaid YT days (like Chol Hamoed)

Why don't you get ot?

I don't qualify for OT since I recently switched to a salary instead of hourly wage.

Sounds like you're getting some paid YT days that hourly employees don't...

No, those YT days are paid for the entire company.
