Another court rules against Cleveland's traffic camera system

CLEVELAND - Another court ruling has been made against Cleveland's traffic camera system.

An Ohio Appeals Court ruled in favor of a driver appealing a speeding ticket from a camera back in 2012, saying the city's traffic camera system is unconstitutional because it undermines the authority of the Cleveland Municipal Court to hear certain traffic cases.

It's in line with a ruling in another case last month that prompted Cleveland to shut down its hearing office for drivers who wanted to fight their traffic camera tickets.

That system just got back up and running Wednesday, and tickets are still being mailed out.

No word yet on how this new ruling will affect the system.
