SHARE Illinois Supreme Court dismisses red light camera challenge

Illinois Supreme Court has dismissed a challenge of Chicago’s red light camera program after two justices “recused themselves and the remaining members of the Court are divided so that it is not possible to secure the constitutionally required concurrence of four judges for a decision,” according to the opinion filed by the court.

The lawsuit, Keating vs. the City of Chicago, claimed the program was illegally enacted.

A state appeals court previously rejected the lawsuit.
