Those traffic cameras you passed on the way into work this morning were still operational, to be sure, even though the Eighth District Court of Appeals ruled that they were unconstitutional this week. The gist of the ruling centered around the fact that Cleveland's traffic violations fall out of the jurisdiction of a municipal court.

Hearings on traffic violations have been suspended for the time being.

Cleveland's law department, meanwhile, is reviewing the court order. Representatives there have not yet returned Scene's request for comment.

UPDATE: Here's Maureen Harper, the mayor's chief of communications, on residents' next actions: "Citizens who have questions surrounding paying violations they received through the traffic camera enforcement program should consult their personal attorney."
