Default Ohio Supreme Court Upholds Anti-Speed Camera Ruling

Full article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/64/6480.asp

New Miami, Ohio loses last-ditch Supreme Court appeal to avoid paying back $3 million in illegally collected photo radar fines.

"The Ohio Supreme Court majority has sided multiple times with speed cameras, but a majority of justices on Wednesday agreed that New Miami has gone too far. In a one-sentence entry, Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor turned away the desperate plea of the one-square-mile speed trap town seeking to hold on to the photo radar cash it had collected. New Miami insisted that it would go bankrupt if forced to refund $3,066,523 in tickets issued under a program deemed illegal by a series of court rulings."

"Upon consideration of thejurisdictional memoranda filed in this case, the court declines to accept jurisdiction of the appeal," the chief justice wrote.

By declining the appeal, the state Court of Appeals decision (view ruling) saying the town had to pay back the fines will now take effect. The case has bounced around the courts for five years, with Butler County Judge Michael A. Oster's original findings (view case) being upheld at every stage.
