Florida Lawsuit Against License Plate Readers Advances

A Florida judge earlier this month found merit in the argument that automated license plate readers (ALPR, also known as ANPR) might violate state privacy laws. The New Civil Liberties Alliance, a group that seeks to limit the power of administrative agencies, sued the city of Coral Gables on behalf Raul Mas Canosa, a motorist who was tracked by the city’s cameras.
“If I’ve done nothing wrong and have no criminal record, why is my city monitoring me?” Canosa asked.
