HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) -- A Butler County judge plans to hear arguments in a lawsuit challenging a village's use of speeding cameras.

The Butler County court hearing scheduled Tuesday on New Miami's cameras is the latest legal skirmish in the battle around Ohio over automated speeding and red-light enforcement.

The lawsuit against New Miami was filed last year in the aftermath of a ruling in neighboring Hamilton County ordering a halt to speeding cameras in the Cincinnati area village of Elmwood Place.

Motorists say their due process rights are being violated in a system they say bypasses courts and doesn't give them much chance to contest camera-produced tickets.

Village attorneys say Judge Michael Sage should reject the claims, or wait until the Ohio Supreme Court rules on a pending case about Toledo's traffic cameras.
