Supreme Court Extends Stay, Agrees to Hear Appeal in Favor of Banning Traffic Cameras
Posted on Oct 14, 2010 in Local Issues, Traffic
The Louisiana Supreme Court has extended the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals’ stay against Judge Paulette Irons’ ruling that traffic cameras violate the New Orleans City Charter.
Following Judge Irons’ ruling against the cameras, the city immediately issued a request for a stay of the ruling which was upheld due to the large amount of revenue the city was expecting to generate from the cameras in order to support its current budget projections. That original stay expired today but has been extended by the Supreme Court pending the appeals process.
It is unclear how the case against traffic cameras will unfold in the Supreme Court but we will continue to monitor its progress and post the latest information here.
