Ohio judge rules for speeding-ticket refunds

– Drivers who got speeding camera tickets in a Cincinnati-area village are entitled to nearly $1.8 million in refunds, pending the village’s appeal of class-action status, a southwest Ohio judge ruled Thursday.

Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Robert Ruehlman, who last March ordered Elmwood Place to stop using the cameras and called them “a scam,” repeated that the village’s camera system violated Ohio’s constitution and rules on judicial process and public notice.

He said besides refunds of the $105 citations and other motorists’ costs, which total at least $1.76 million, the village is liable for the plaintiffs’ attorneys’ fees, because “Elmwood Place acted in bad faith in implementing the ordinance.”
