Cleveland camera case put on hold in Ohio

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's Supreme Court has put a Cleveland traffic cameras case on hold while the justices decide their ruling in a motorist's challenge to Toledo's camera system.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday stayed legal arguments in appeals of a lower court's ruling in Cleveland. A state appellate court had ruled that the traffic system unconstitutionally bypassed the judiciary, but that the motorist lacked legal standing to recover his speeding fine. Both sides appealed.

The justices last month listened to arguments on an appeal by Toledo and its camera vendor of an appellate court's ruling for a driver who sued over a 2009 camera-generated ticket.

The motorist's attorneys said the camera system usurps judicial authority and violates due process. Toledo contended that camera systems are allowed under Ohio self-governing powers.
