Class Action lawsuit filed against Cleveland for traffic cameras

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Red light and speed cameras can be found throughout the entire City of Cleveland.

Motorists who get busted by those traffic cams have to cough up $100-bucks each time.

The cameras have always been controversial. Some residents have sued and lost, but apparently used the wrong legal strategy.

Beachwood attorney Paul Greenberger has a better idea. He's filed a class action lawsuit directly with the Ohio Supreme court. Greenberger argues the revised code in particular says the municipal court has jurisdiction of violation of any ordinance.

The bottom line is, Greenberger wins you may not have to pay for those tickets or you may get your money back if you've already paid.
