Case No. 16-0435

City of Cedar Rapids
v.
Marla Marie Leaf

The appellant seeks further review after the court of appeals affirmed the assessment of a civil fine for her violation of section 61.138 of the Cedar Rapids Municipal Code, the City’s automated traffic enforcement (ATE) ordinance. The court of appeals rejected the appellant’s arguments that the ATE system is unconstitutional under the Equal Protection, Privileges and Immunities, and Due Process Clauses of the Iowa Constitution, is in violation of and preempted by Iowa law, and constitutes an unlawful delegation of police power.
