Cleveland has suspended its process for drivers to contest traffic camera tickets while it decides what to do following a courtroom setback.
The 8th Ohio District Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that the city must allow motorists to fight tickets in Municipal Court, not before a hearing officer as it has been handled.
The court says Cleveland's system violates the requirement that tickets come under Municipal Court. Sam Jodka of Columbus sued over how Cleveland handles challenges of ticket fines costing up to $200.
