NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A driver who just so happens to be a judge has filed a lawsuit against the City of New York for a traffic camera ticket he claimed was unjust.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Geoffrey Wright sued Wednesday in the same court. City attorneys said they would review the suit upon receiving it.
Wright said his family got a notice saying a camera caught his car being driven in a Manhattan bus lane last October.
He says it was not.
He later took his own photographs that he says back him up. The photos are based on where certain street features were located in respect to his car.
Wright contested the violation and appealed an administrative law judge’s ruling against him. His suit seeks to get the violation thrown out.
It was unclear Thursday which judge will be assigned to handle the case.
