A St. Louis County Circuit Judge Gives Final Approval to $18 Million Statewide Settlement involving 27 Municipalities and American Traffic Solutions Inc

A St. Louis County circuit judge gave final approval to an $18 million statewide settlement over red-light cameras. The settlement ends a series of nine class action lawsuits involving 27 municipalities and American Traffic Solutions Inc. Under the cities programs, tickets were sent to the registered owners of vehicles allegedly captured on camera in an intersection in violation of a red-light traffic signal. Fines were typically about $100. The plaintiffs in the cases had alleged that use of the cameras didnt comply with Missouri statutes governing moving violations. The suits also claimed the tickets did not meet the statutory and constitutional requirements of proper notice and due process. The plaintiffs also claimed that the municipalities and ATS were unjustly enriched from the fines collected from the allegedly unlawful tickets. The municipalities and ATS maintained that the tickets were valid and enforceable. Over years of litigation, there have been six published appellate decisions on the subject, some of which invalidated red-light camera ordinances but held that the plaintiffs were barred from recovering fines paid. Given the unsettled state of the law, the parties reached a settlement in September 2014. Judge Tom W. DePriest Jr. gave initial approval in November and, following a hearing, approved the deal. Under the settlement, class members who paid red-light camera tickets were entitled to reimbursement of 20% of the amount they paid. According to court records, there were 892,725 identified plaintiffs, of whom 253 requested to be excluded and five opted out. The amount of the settlement was approximately $16 million, plus $2 million in attorneys fees. The class, however, excludes the plaintiffs in an ongoing lawsuit over the city of St. Louis red-light traffic system.
