TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) - Rejecting arguments by the city of Aventura, the Florida Supreme Court has refused to reconsider a June ruling which sided with drivers who challenged the local red-light camera ordinances in Aventura and Orlando.
The case stemmed from red-light camera programs that the cities used before a 2010 statewide law authorized the traffic devices and set requirements.
Justices said the cities did not comply with the state's traffic laws at the time.
But Aventura sought a rehearing in the case. In part, it argued that the court could have invalidated a portion of the ordinance dealing with penalties instead of invalidating the entire red-light camera ordinance.
On Monday, with no explanation, the Supreme Court issued an order denying the motion for rehearing. The order was approved in a 6-1 vote, with Justice Barbara Pariente dissenting.
