For those of you that are regular listeners to my radio show on Rule of Law Radio / Logos Radio Network, you have often heard me make mention of all of the very substantial reasons that red light cameras are completely unconstitutional right out of the gate. And, as noted in one of my other previous posts, they are even more illegal and unconstitutional when implemented via municipal ordinance rather than by state law or statute. I even posted one of my last blog updates with information relating to this very thing in the form of a video and an updated red light camera “kiss my royal individual sovereign ass” response letter.
Today, I have even bigger and better news in that particular arena. And that news revolves around the very highly regarded desire to end the unconstitutional fiasco created by these programs. That desire has finally reached a point of fruition that will hopefully culminate in the long-sought-after removal of these cameras and the injustices that they have wrought upon every person that has ever received one.
That being said, this post contains several documents relating to a class-action lawsuit that has just been filed against a multitude of Texas municipalities for their unconstitutional and downright illegal red light camera citation scams.I would HIGHLY recommend that anyone that has EVER received one of these citations relating to a Texas municipality try and contact the law firm that filed the suit and see if you can be included as a Plaintiff.
Their first amended complaint (attached) was filed in federal court just a few days ago, and it will provide all of the lurid details as to the inner workings and corrupt practices that have been engaged in for more than eight years by some of these municipalities, and slightly fewer years for some of the others, but, each and every one illegal and unconstitutional before they were ever voted upon to be enacted. This red light camera scam was born and foisted upon the people of Texas back in 2007 by the Texas Legislature in yet another attempt to steal money from the people through unconstitutional legislation (Texas Constitution).
When I first read the complaint, I recognized all of the same arguments that I have been using in my discussions with activist groups on this subject. Many of which are also part of the red light camera chapter in my second upcoming book on the judiciaries intentional denial of legal due process in misdemeanor cases handled in Texas courts. It is noteworthy because the large law firm that has filed the suit on behalf of their client are actually validating all of the arguments I have been making all along by making those same arguments in their complaint. It is noteworthy because it is irrefutable proof that going to law school is NOT a prerequisite to understanding what our constitutions and statutes actually say and mean, nor does it require judicial interpretation by a judge or an attorney to be understandable.
Real law and justice does NOT require specialized training to comprehend, to fight for, or to adjudicate, as long as you are not arguing and ruling based upon some personal or political agenda rather than the actual facts, the circumstances, the law, and the constitutionality of all of the above. It requires only that one have an above average grasp of right and wrong as well as the predominate written and spoken language where the law will be practiced. The false belief in specialized training was originally established, and is being maintained, by the elitist legal fraternity through the various Bar Associations and law firms, who currently have a monopoly on access to the courts, the tools used in the legal industry, and recognition as being one knowledgeable in the law, even when they aren’t. This is a judicial system that the attorneys and judges have created entirely for themselves, not we the People. It is the Bar that constantly changes the purpose of law, the manner of arguing and filing pleadings, and every other manner of process and procedure meant to make even what was once the simplest of actions into a legal quagmire to the uninitiated layman. There can never be equal justice under the law because the practice and methods of achieving that justice are known and controlled by only a select few. And all of it is entirely violative of justice and the rights of the people to substantial and substantive due process.
That being said, enjoy the read, because I certainly did!

7 thoughts on “Texas Red Light Camera Citations – Class Action Suit Filed”
Hi, Eddie! I called into your radio show the other night regarding a camera red light ticket. Thank you so much for all that you are doing in the name of True Justice! I have read everything I can and used your letter to send for the “violation”. What other responses have you gotten back from others who have used the letter? And when are you going to lead a Class Action lawsuit for us here in Fort Worth?? 🙂 Thanks again- I can’t get enough of your information!
There is already a law firm in your area that has filed suit. The attorney was originally trying to do it as a class action, but the courts shut him down because the client he filed it for actually lives in Louisiana and not Texas. His contact info is in the documents linked in at the bottom of the Red Light Camera Law Suit article I have posted here. I would contact him and see if he would add you as a plaintiff.
So lt me get this reight , a person from ” loos-ianna ” can be written a ticket in texas but he does not have standing to sue in the same state ? How does this work ?
Where are you getting that idea? The man in Louisiana that was issued the red light camera ticket DID sue the State of Texas Dept. of Public Safety AND the Municipality here in Texas, which is the ONLY place that he could do so other than in the federal courts.
The Class Action failed because it was filed by an Attorney “licensed to do buiness” instead of an Injured Man who did not, with intent, CON-tract with his PERSON’s Consumer and the municipality doing business as a corporation. USCOTUS ruled those camera’s unconstitutional YEARS AGO. The reason? THE INTENT behind their USE. It’s one thing to use a camera to record an event. It’s another to use an Image OF an Event to try to Operating in Commerce and Trade by THREATS/BLACKMAIL/EXTORTION or Duress. What idiot would PAY for a photo from one inanimate object, of their inanimate object, committing a Non Crime? duh.
Greetings! I’ve been reading your website for
a long time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and
give you a shout out from Kingwood Tx! Just wanted to say keep up the great job!
Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this informative article together. I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and posting comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
