Video "Red Light" Camera Program Leads To Class Action Lawsuit

Per The New Jersey Law Journal:

"Ten days after New Jersey suspended most operations of cameras that catch red-light runners, a putative class action has been filed against a municipality that uses them, seeking refunds of $1.48 million in fines.

"The June 29 suit, in Camden County Superior Court, claims that Cherry Hill's failure to follow state regulations led to yellow lights that were too short in duration, causing inaccurate data.

"The named plaintiffs in Spector v. Cherry Hill Township, are David Specter of Voorhees and Henry Anderson of Marlton, each of whom paid $85 fines after being issued summonses. They allege unjust enrichment and violations of 42 U.S.C. 1983 and the New Jersey Civil Rights Act."
