Ohio Cities Denied In Effort To Block Anti-Speed Camera Law

Ohio cities desperate to preserve their speed cameras in the face of a recent state law lost a key ruling on Thursday. The Ohio Court of Appeals refused to block a provision of House Bill 62 (view law) that stripped the ability of local mayors to set up administrative hearings run by mayoral appointees to hear challenges to photo radar tickets. Instead, those hearings must be heard in a municipal court where full due process rights apply.
