Speed-Camera Case Against State Republican Party Director Brett Mecum Dismissed by Judge

 

No surprise here: Anti-photo-enforcement Judge John Keegan has dismissed the speed camera case against Arizona Republican Party Director Brett Mecum.

Keegan, justice of the peace for the Arrowhead Justice Court, has tossed hundreds of photo-enforcement cases because he believes the system is unconstitutional. The Department of Public Safety sends cases to the courts nearest the location of the alleged violation, so Mecum could hardly have picked a better location to get caught speeding With his rocket ride, though, next time he oughta try Firebird Raceway

 

UPDATE 2011: Mecum takes plea after case is reinstated.
