CINCINNATI (AP) — A lawyer representing motorists ticketed for speeding as a result of a village's traffic cameras wants the southwest Ohio village found in contempt for allegedly continuing to issue the tickets after a judge said to stop.
Attorney Mike Allen filed the motion against the village of Elmwood Place on Wednesday in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court. Allen also asked for class action status for the original complaint by motorists trying to get their money back from tickets they have already paid.
The judge ruled this month that the village must stop using the cameras he called a scam. The cameras have generated more than $1 million for the village, which is appealing the judge's ruling.
Village officials did not immediately return a call Thursday seeking comment on the latest filings.
