Red Light Camera fraud will continue in Pennsylvania. Don’t count on the courts to save you from corruption.
The Third Circuit US Court of Appeals on Thursday cited technical grounds in throwing out evidence of corruption in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, photo ticketing program. A three-judge panel rejected the whistleblower lawsuit filed by former municipal employees who claimed the red light camera contractor Conduent (Xerox) had defrauded the Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA) of at least $9 million in the course of securing a $100 million contract. When the whistleblowers, Andrew J. Dankanich and Nicholas A. Marrandino, brought their specific complaints to city officials, the city spent a total of six minutes considering the allegations before dismissing the claim.
