After Washington, D.C. collected more than $1.5 million in fines from a faulty red light camera, one court ruled that attorney Daniel Wemhoff couldn’t bring suit to reimburse those who were wrongly ticketed unless he could provide their names.

Later, another court denied Wemhoff’s Freedom of Information Act request to access those names, concluding that releasing that information would violate the motorists’ privacy.

Which means that the District will likely get to keep the $1.5 million it wrongly collected from the faulty camera.
