Ohio Supreme Court to hear traffic camera arguments

CINCINNATI (AP) - The Ohio Supreme Court plans to hear arguments in two months on the use of traffic cameras.

The justices set June 11 for oral arguments in a motorist's challenge of a red-light citation in Toledo. He says the city is bypassing the judiciary and violated his constitutional due process rights. The state's highest court likely will have a decisive say on a growing movement against camera enforcement in the state that has seen motorists win recent lawsuits in several other municipalities.

Cities with cameras contend Ohio law allows them to handle such matters administratively. They also defend cameras as stretching police resources and making communities safer.

Meanwhile, Justice Terrence O'Donnell removed himself from the case for an unspecified potential conflict. An appellate judge would fill in on the seven-justice court.
