CINCINNATI (AP) — A southwest Ohio judge who decisively rejected use of cameras for speeding enforcement will hear arguments on whether a village must reimburse motorists.

Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Robert Ruehlman Thursday will consider a motion by plaintiffs who want him to rule in their favor without a trial. He ruled earlier that the original 2012 lawsuit can be expanded to all drivers who paid speeding tickets before he ordered a halt to Elmwood Place village's camera enforcement in March.

Thousands of drivers could seek refunds of $105 tickets and other charges.

Attorneys for Elmwood Place want the judge to rule against the reimbursements or wait until after appeals of his earlier rulings. The village has contended cameras improved safety.

There are several other lawsuits around Ohio challenging cameras.
