In the Common Pleas Court of Jefferson County, Ohio
April Stern v. The City of Steubenville, Ohio
Case No. 05-CV-524
Judge David Henderson
Plaintiff's motion for preliminary injunction having come on for hearing on December 5, 2005 and based upon the testimony and exhibits, the court finds sufficient evidence to (1) raise significant question as to whether the City complied with the mandatory notice provisions of its own ordinance, and (2) raise legitimate doubt as to whether the City had authority under the Ohio constitution to enact the ordinance in the first place.
It is, therefore, ORDERED, that the City shall be, and is, preliminarily enjoined from enforcing the ordinance until the time of the final hearing. The City shall not deploy any automated speed enforcement cameras, nor issue further citations, nor negotiate any checks received for payment of citations already issued, until further order. The court finds that no bond is required under the circumstances of this case.
This order is binding upon the City, its officers, agents, designees, and all those who are in active concert or participation with the City in its operation of the Speed Enforcement System.
DAVID E. HENDERSON, Judge
