What to do if I received a signed document by the Clerk of the Superior Court as being “Certified True” which was supposed to have disposed of an old traffic ticket.

I then called the court just to verify that it had been disposed. The clerk proceeded to explain that the clerk must have made a mistake because my case was still showing to be active. Aren’t the courts liable for what they sent me as being “True”? Shouldn’t they have to comply with their own document even if it was a mistake?

Court clerks make mistakes all the time given the lack of staff and case congestion. What you need to do is go to the court clerk and meet with one of its representatives face to face to get the matter that you have written about resolved. Talking to the supervisor is another way to address the problem.
