Judge Still Doesn't Like Those Red-Light Cams, But Nothing's Final Yet

Yesterday, shortly after State District Judge Craig Smith reaffirmed his earlier ruling that Affiliated Computer Services's red-light cameras violate a state law requiring an investigations license, I e-mailed Kevin Lightfoot, ACS's veep of corporate communications, for a comment. This is what he said: "Essentially, nothing is finalized in this case and we look forward to resolving this issue when the judge is expected to rule on this in February. The Judge is still reconsidering his earlier ruling."

Indeed, the next hearing concerning this case is February 19, during which time the judge "the could rule on whether an individual... can bring legal action under the Occupations Code," says The News's story. Just don't run a red light -- problem solved. --Robert Wilonsky
