CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland has suspended its process for drivers to contest traffic camera tickets while it decides what to do following a courtroom setback.

For now, the city said Friday it will continue issuing traffic camera tickets for speeding and red light violations. The delay of several weeks in sending tickets in the mail will give the city time to decide how to let drivers challenge tickets.

The 8th Ohio District Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that the city must allow motorists to fight tickets in Municipal Court, not before a hearing officer as it has been handled.

The court says Cleveland’s system violates the requirement that tickets come under Municipal Court. Sam Jodka of Columbus sued over how Cleveland handles challenges of ticket fines costing up to $200.
