Redflex Holdings Limited (RHL), the embattled Australian red light camera company, has now been brought into an ongoing massive corruption-related lawsuit involving the city of Chicago.
Earlier this year, the city of Chicago had previously sued Redflex Traffic Systems Inc. (RTSI), RHL’s Arizona-based subsidiary, for $300 million. RTSI recently had the case transferred out of Illinois state court and into federal court.
Earlier this week, the city of Chicago filed an amended complaint outlining expanded allegations against both firms. The new allegations include the previous accusations of violations of the city’s False Claims Ordinance “as well as claims for breach of contract, civil conspiracy, unjust enrichment, and payment of kickbacks in connection with City contracts.”
