Class certification denied to drivers in Ohio River toll bridges (between Indiana and Kentucky) lawsuit

Finding the group to be too inclusive, a federal judge has denied a motion for class certification filed by drivers who claim they were wrongly charged late fees and fines when they crossed the Ohio River toll bridges.

The lawsuit was filed in the Southern Indiana District Court in 2020 on behalf of the drivers who either did not open individual debit accounts which would allow for the tolls to be deducted automatically or did not have enough funds in their accounts to cover the tolls. Consequently, these drivers were mailed a bill for the toll charges whenever they motored across the Kennedy, the Lincoln or the Lewis and Clark bridges.
