Lawsuit Filed Against Redflex; Class-Action Status Sought has learned that a Scottsdale-based law firm has filed suit in Maricopa Superior Court against Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., and the Town of Paradise Valley, AZ.

The suit, filed by Pak and Moring Plc, claims Redflex committed wrongdoing by not getting federal approval for radar equipment used to cite motorists.  If approved, class-action status could be granted to the suit to include “all persons who received tickets that were generated by a Redflex mobile radar unit operated in violation of relevant law.”

(See the legal brief here in Adobe Reader / .pdf format)

Allegations in the brief also raise the possibility that Redflex may have intentionally concealed the fact that their equipment wasn’t certified, and whether Redflex committed consumer or common-law fraud., while not a party to the lawsuit, has been publicly alledging fraud on the part of Redflex and ATS, and recently organized a sucessful demonstation in Scottsdale. A videographer who contributes to, as well as, was arrested by the Scottsdale Police department on 8/27/2008 while peacefully documenting the activities of two sign-wielding photo radar demonstators.

    Wisdom of Old:

    Decency, security, and liberty alike demand that government officials shall be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen. In a government of laws, existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438, 485 (1928)

    We need to re-educate our government! Learn the Wisdom of old, and quote it often to the insubordinate – rebellious – public servants! – Supreme Court Cases – Just enter keywords like liberty, click to page 25, and read the old cases. Pay attention to the words, “As we have said”. There is a brief history of their opinions!

    It is now 10-28-10. What has ahppened to this law suit. Are there any other class action law suits a “victim” of this fraud can attach to? It appears to me that a class action suit against Redflex and the State of Arizona for Conspiricy and Fraud should be brought. I think this is one of the biggest frauds I have ever seen and clearly the state is an eager participant. Is this America or did we become Russia over the past few years?

    Glendale red light camera ticket follow-up:

    I had a camera malfunction and take my photo and now I have an $800 dollar ticket. I’ve been to the courthouse, police station, 3 times, no one at the local level is being accountable, no one will talk to me about it, no one will answer my calls, and I’ve written 3 letters so far. This is an absolute disgrace on the part of local government, and they show zero accountability. Their voicemail box is now full, and the officer who is the “person to talk to” has a locked dark office and is never there.

    This is collusion and fraud. The intersection that I got a “photo ticket” at makes at least $173,000 a month, and cost the city 6k to rent the camera.

    They send out fake “snitch tickets” too, so people are tricked to admitting their car was in the photo. These aren’t even real legitimate tickets. It’s total fraud. I’ve requested the court reveals to me the contracts, code, and maintenance records of this camera, and so far they have ignored me. I will take the city to court before I pay for this scam, this is taxation without representation and needs to be stopped.
