Ohio Judge Refuses To Garnish Speed Cameras From Scofflaw Town

New Miami, Ohio broke the law, but it will not have to face the sort of consequences that an ordinary motorist might face. Butler County Common Pleas Court Judge Michael A. Oster Jr on Thursday rejected an attempt to use garnishment to force the village to repay the cash it collected under an unlawful speed camera program. Earlier this year, the Twelfth District Court of Appeals gave the class action lawsuit a green light to proceed, but Judge Oster was careful not to overstep his authority knowing the higher courts have taken an interest in the issue.

France, Italy: Speed Cameras Attacked

In Saint-Beauzire, France, vigilantes covered the speed camera on the RD586 with fat, preventing it from issuing tickets, La Montagne reported. In Haute Gironde, vigilantes completely burned the speed camera on the D137 last Monday, Sud Ouest reported. The same automated ticketing machine had been burned previously in 2013. Last year it was painted black and then orange.

Federal Judge Tosses Missouri Red-Light Camera Lawsuit

A federal judge on Tuesday threw out a class action lawsuit filed against the Hannibal, Missouri’s red-light camera program. Motorists Sarah and Jacob Blair each received tickets in the mail between 2011 and 2012. They argued that the cameras that produced the citations were merely a cash grab that diminished public safety. US District Judge E. Richard Webber believed that even though photo enforcement programs are entirely run by private, for-profit companies, sovereign immunity prevents Hannibal from being sued.

Legal Attack On Texas Red-Light Cameras Spreads

A Texas judge last month invalidated red-light camera tickets issued in Richardson because the city did not bother conducting the legally required traffic studies. Now Russell J. Bowman, the attorney who won the Richardson case, is directing the same attack toward the cities of Diboll and Willis. Despite its loss in court, Richardson refuses to tell its private vendor to stop issuing citations.
