City of Dayton v. State of Ohio, Case No. 2015-1549
Second District Court of Appeals (Montgomery County)
- Are certain provisions in laws passed in 2014 in Senate Bill 342 governing the use of red-light and speeding traffic cameras arbitrary, do they serve no purpose except to limit municipal power, and do they violate the Home Rule Amendment of the Ohio Constitution because they aren't general laws?
- Although courts are required in a home-rule analysis to consider the legislation as a whole, are they also required to specifically analyze the challenged provisions to determine whether the provisions unconstitutionally limit cities' home-rule authority?
