A second lawsuit against Bluff City’s speed cameras
A second lawsuit has been filed against Bluff City’s speed cameras and a Johnson City attorney compares the process of appealing a ticket to an electronic lynching. Robert King filed the lawsuit earlier this month in Chancery Court in Washington County as he represents five people who received speeding tickets from the cameras on U.S. Highway 11E in Piney Flats. The suit claims that some who were issued tickets were denied due process and convictions were automatically generated by a computer system. The suit claims Bluff City’s photo enforcement system is a mockery of justice. King is seeking class-action status for the lawsuit and believes there are thousands who have been issued tickets and denied due process. The suit goes on to claim that the law is violated as tickets are issued by the cameras and state that a person who pays a fine to Bluff City is admitting guilt. King says that the speed camera program appears to be a steady stream of money for the city and all involved. The lawsuit seeks a refund of all fines and costs associated with the speeding tickets.
