Ryan Keane, of The Simon Law Firm, recently obtained final approval of a class action settlement involving red light cameras. As reported by Missouri Lawyers Weekly, Judge Tom DePriest granted final approval of the settlement on March 13, 2015. The settlement offered a partial cash refund to over 800,000 people who had paid red light camera tickets. Ryan was co-lead counsel for the Plaintiffs and the Class who challenged the constitutionality and validity of red light cameras throughout Missouri. The settlement was reached after five years of litigation and six published appellate decisions. The majority of those appellate decisions invalidated the red light camera ordinances at issue and subsequently halted numerous other red light camera programs across Missouri.
