Indiana/Kentucky: Lawsuit against Ohio River tolled bridges swerves around motion to dismiss

A lawsuit against the vendors in charge of the tolling system on three of the bridges connecting southern Indiana to Louisville, Kentucky, has been given the greenlight to continue after a federal court denied the defendants’ motion to dismiss.

The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana refused to toss any of the eight claims filed by a group of motorists who assert they were fraudulently charged late fees when they were billed for using the tolled bridges. Judge Tanya Walton Pratt noted the 35-page ruling determined the plaintiffs had properly stated their claims but did not test whether they would ultimately prevail.
