Greenville, NC: Red light camera suit goes to court

The fate of Greenville’s red-light camera program and the income it has generated for Pitt County Schools now rests with three judges.

Attorneys representing the city, Pitt County Schools and Mary Sue Vaitovis presented their arguments for summary judgment in the case of Vaitovis v. City and Pitt County Board of Education on Friday at Campbell Law School, Boyce Courtroom in Raleigh.

The three-judge panel is hearing the case because of legislation that requires such panels when acts of the General Assembly are challenged in court. The panel is comprised of three superior court judges who are picked from across the state, said Emma Hudson, Pitt County Schools’ general counsel.
