Ohio Supreme Court to review appeals court decision about red-light camera citations

BLADE STAFF

The Ohio Supreme Court today agreed to review a decision by Ohio’s 6th District Court of Appeals that said a challenge of the appeal process for red-light camera citations should not have been thrown out by a Lucas County Common Pleas judge.

On June 28, the appeals court reversed a decision by Common Pleas Judge Ruth Ann Franks to dismiss a 2011 class-action lawsuit filed by Bradley Walker of Kentucky against the city of Toledo and RedFlex Traffic Systems, Inc. Mr. Walker claimed Toledo police had not established an appeals process for those cited by the cameras.

The city and RedFlex asked the Ohio Supreme Court to review the case, contending it raised constitutional issues and was of great significance to all cities that have traffic photo enforcement.
