In The Region:

The Ohio Supreme Court says JobsOhio can’t be compelled to produce certain documents by the state’s public records law because state legislators specifically exempted most of JobsOhio's records from that law. Statehouse correspondent Karen Kasler has more.

The Columbus lawyer who filed the complaint was hoping that it would result in the Ohio Supreme Court making a final ruling on the constitutionality of JobsOhio.  Victoria Ullman also worked on another suit filed by a coalition of liberal and conservative groups led by Progress Ohio. She’s a bit disappointed, but not discouraged.

“I’m hoping that they chose to allow Progress Ohio’s case to go forward. I’m hoping that’s what this means. But I don’t know that but I don’t think that they would totally allow it not to be determined.”

The Progress Ohio suit, which was argued by a lawyer from the Tea Party backed 1851 Center for Constitutional Law, seeks to establish who has the legal right to sue over the law that created JobsOhio. And there’s no telling when a ruling in that case might come.
