Red-light camera, death penalty opinions filing tomorrow

The Supreme Court will file two opinions tomorrow.

In People v. Gray, the court will decide this question about red-light cameras:  Does Vehicle Code section 21455.5, subdivision (b), require a local jurisdiction to provide only one 30-day warning notice period prior to the initial installation of an automated traffic enforcement system, or is such notice required prior to the installation of ATES equipment at each additional intersection within the jurisdiction?

The court will hear argument in another red-light camera case — People v. Goldsmith — next month.

The court will also issue its opinion in People v. Montes, an automatic appeal from a March 1997 judgment of death.

Both Gray and Montes were argued in January.

The opinions can be viewed online tomorrow beginning at 10:00 a.m.
