COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A veteran northeast Ohio appellate judge will sit in when the Ohio Supreme Court decides in a lawsuit against traffic camera enforcement.

Court records show that Judge W. Scott Gwinn of the Fifth District Court of Appeals will fill in for Justice Terrence O’Donnell. O’Donnell last week removed himself from the Toledo traffic cameras case for an unspecified reason.

Gwinn was first elected to the appeals bench in 1988.

The court has set oral arguments for June 11 in a motorist’s challenge of a red-light citation in Toledo. The motorist says the city’s system is bypassing the judiciary and violating his constitutional due process rights.

The state’s highest court likely will have a decisive say on camera enforcement, after motorists won recent lawsuits in several other municipalities.
