As the Florida Supreme Court prepares to hear at least one challenge to local government implementation of red-light cameras, the Orlando Sentinel reports that Orange County is preparing to contract with a camera company embroiled in bribery scandals in at least three different jurisdictions.

The company at the heart of the latest controversy is Redflex Traffic Systems Inc., which recently lost its Chicago contract after a year-long (and continuing) investigation by the Chicago Tribune implicated the company in a $2 million bribery scheme involving at least one city official.

At the Tribune's instigation, Redflex conducted its own internal audit, canned some if its top executives, and is now exploring possible bribery in two other unnamed "geographies that raise concern," Michael McConnell, interim board chairman of Redflex Holdings, has reportedly told stakeholders.
