Lawsuit Filed Against Redflex; Class-Action Status Sought

September 5, 2008 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.”

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.
