The Ohio Supreme Court will hear a big case on the red light and speed cameras that some 15 Ohio communities are using.
The issue is not whether setting up cameras to catch red light runners and speeders is legal. It’s about whether requiring appeals of traffic camera citations to be heard by administrative hearing officers instead of in municipal court is legal. That is how most cities across the country deal with appeals of traffic camera tickets.
Update: Committee issued it's final report today. You can read it here. Court News Ohio says: The report will now be reviewed by the Chief Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court and by the president of the Ohio State Bar Association and is being made available to the members of the Ohio General Assembly and interested parties.
The Chief Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court is continuing her statewide conversations about judicial election reform. Maureen O'Connor spoke Friday to the Clermont County Chamber of Commerce in Eastgate.
O'Connor said polling shows people like their local judges, but they think there are problems with the legal system. She said it is important to have an impartial judiciary.
