Richard Masone v. City of ventura and City of Orlando v. Michael Udowychenko, etc., et al.
Case Number(s):
SC12-644, SC12-1471
Loading the player...



In these consolidated cases, Mr. Masone and Mr. Udowychenko challenge the legality of city ordinances that authorize the use of unmanned red-light cameras to cite and fine owners of cars that are photographed running red lights. The Third District Court of Appeal upheld Aventura's ordinance. A few weeks later, the Fifth District Court of Appeal ruled against Orlando's ordinance. One of the legal issues in both cases is whether state law preempts these municipal ordinances.
