NEW MIAMI, Ohio (AP) - Lawyers for residents who won a nearly $2 million lawsuit against a southwest Ohio village over its speed cameras want to garnish proceeds from a new camera program to make sure the residents get paid.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports (https://bit.ly/1rKkqiP ) the attorneys filed a motion in Butler County accusing New Miami of trying to defraud creditors by contracting with an out-of-state company to collect fines.

The village’s traffic cameras were installed in 2012 but ruled unconstitutional after a little over a year. The village has asked the state Supreme Court to review the case.

The village had collected about $1.8 million on nearly 45,000 citations through 15 months of operation.
