Cleveland Reinstates Traffic Camera Appeals Process

The city of Cleveland has reinstated its appeals process for drivers who challenge traffic camera tickets. The city temporarily suspended the process but continued to issue tickets despite a state appeals court ruling in January declaring the process unconstitutional. The city is appealing the ruling that says it must let motorists fight tickets in Municipal Court, not before an administrative officer. Officials say the court ruling does not prohibit the move. Columbus resident Sam Jodka filed the lawsuit that prompted the appeals court ruling. Jodka's attorney says his client believes Cleveland is not complying with the court ruling.
