Is a class action lawsuit against N.J. red light cameras drawing closer to an end?

Thanks to the technological advancements of the last decade, it's virtually impossible to go anywhere in public without potentially being recorded by a sophisticated surveillance system or even a cell phone camera. As evidenced by the popularity of reality shows, internet news sites and viral videos, many people might not actually mind this as much as you might think.

Update: Philadelphia Traffic Court judges accused of fixing tickets

Two weeks ago, we discussed how federal prosecutors had filed a multitude of criminal charges against nine sitting and former judges of the Philadelphia Traffic Court, alleging that these officials engaged in an intricate scheme to fix or reduce traffic violations for business, social or political associates.

Federal prosecutors recently filed fraud charges against nine current and former judges of the Philadelphia Traffic Court, alleging that these officials reduced traffic violations for several well-connected drivers.

Prosecutors are alleging that they threw out tickets for such offenses as speeding and/or turned these tickets into lesser offenses.
