Myron Cherry & Associates Files Suit Challenging Chicago Ordinance That Attempts to Revive Hundreds of Millions of Dollars in Traffic Camera Tickets Previously Ruled Void

Posted on: November 3rd, 2016 by Romanucci & Blandin

 

Mayor Rahm Emanuel proposed the ordinance shortly after a Judge ruled in court documents that hundreds of millions of dollars in past speed and red light camera tickets are void and invalid due to the City’s failure to follow mandatory notice provisions and unlawful acceleration of liability determinations.

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (NOVEMBER 02, 2016) – The suit alleges that the City of Chicago, at the behest of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, passed an ordinance on September 21, 2016 which attempts to authorize new administrative hearings on alleged speed and red light camera offenses that occurred years ago and which had already been found illegal and void in a prior suit entitled Simpson v. City of Chicago, Case No. 15 CH 4802 (Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois). Myron M. Cherry and Jacie C. Zolna of Myron M. Cherry & Associates and Antonio Romanucci of Romanucci & Blandin represent the Plaintiffs.

The lawsuit alleges that the new ordinance is illegal because the Illinois Vehicle Code requires specified procedures that must be followed for the enforcement of speed and red light camera violations. Court documents indicate that the ordinance is inconsistent with nearly every one of those procedural safeguards. The lawsuit also claims that the ordinance violates the due process and equal protection clauses of the Illinois and United States Constitutions.

The lawsuit is entitled McKenzie-Lopez v. City of Chicago, Case No. 16 CH 14304 and was filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois.
