If your state requires you to have 2 license plates and your vehicle came with only one when you bought it then how do you fight a ticket in court?
Answer . \nI suspect you're screwed. Save your money, pay your fine, move on.\n. \nIt's the owner's responsibility to properly display license plates, and if you can't b…ecause you don't have them both, it's up to the owner to go to the appropriate authority and fix it.\n. \nThis assumes that you mean that it's registered in your home state, and your home state requires two plates. If it was legally registered in a another state that doesn't have two, but an over-zealous cop wrote you up for it anyway, that should be a slam dunk: what you were doing wasn't against the law.
Virginia requires two California also has this stupid law. But I know there are more then 2 states but the vast majority do not require both to be displayed (only the rear pla…te).

In Cars & Vehicles
Many American states are now strictly enforcing laws that require vehicles to display two license plates (on the rear and front of the vehicle). One possible benefit of front …license plates is to increase the effectiveness of red-light cameras, which only work if a vehicle can be linked back to its registered owner. Opponents of two license plates usually do not like front plates on certain sports cars and historic cars because of their visual obtrusiveness from the vehicle. They argue that they add cost to production, use resources (metal), create double the amount of waste and do not give police any extra tool in recovering stolen vehicles. Added: At one time most (all?) states issued wo plates and over time they cut back to just one (displayed on the rear) usually for budgetary purposes (i.e.: cost). Therefore the ones that kept them it was mostly custom that dictated it. Now, (as described above) it is possible we may see a resurgence in the issuance of two license plates to improve the abilities of newly introduced technologies to identify a particular vehicle.
