Court of Appeals Issues Stay Against Judge’s Ruling on Camera Tickets
Posted on Oct 4, 2010 in Courts, Local Issues, Traffic
The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals has issued an emergency stay at the request of the City of New Orleans against Judge Paulette Irons’ ruling last week that traffic cameras violate the city’s charter.
The city’s attorney is expected to request a permanent stay today. Traffic cameras were expected to generate an additional $15 million in revenue this year so the potential suspension or elimination of the Photo Safety Program is being met with considerable resistance.
These developments reverse the information that was released on Friday indicating that traffic tickets issued over the weekend would be considered null and void.
