St. Louis Judge Provides Object Lesson in Conservatism for the Missouri GOP

State bills in Missouri's General Assembly to curtail red light cameras came up short in the recent legislative session, but there's good news in St. Louis!

According to KMOX, Judge Mark Neill has thrown out red-light camera laws in St. Louis.

The 22nd Judicial Circuit Court judge ruled there was no state legislation to enable the red-light cameras in the city.  The cameras, which earned the city approximately $3 million each year in revenue through $100 fines, are no longer valid in the City of St. Louis due to Neill's ruling.  

Officials from the city have not commented on whether the ruling will be appealed.
