ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - If you paid a red light ticket in Orlando between 2007-2010, you may soon qualify to be a part of a class action lawsuit to get your money back, according to a lawsuit filed in Orange County in March of this year.
An attorney for the sole plaintiff in the case had a hearing before a judge on Wednesday. The judge will now have 60 days to decide whether this case will become class-action status. If the judge decides it will be a class-action case, then the lawsuit is asking the City of Orlando and LaserCraft to pay back what they have collected in paid tickets.
LaserCraft is a subsidiary of American Traffic Solutions, which is the current company that services Orlando's red light tickets. The lawsuit states that between 2007-2010, the city issued 49,000 tickets, with estimated revenue from citations that comes to approximately $6,125,000.
If the judge rules that this is a class action lawsuit, then the lawsuit is asking that the $6 million (plus damages) be repaid to the drivers who paid their tickets.
