The state’s highest court has ruled that ProgressOhio, a liberal policy group, and two Democratic lawmakers do not have the right to sue over the constitutionality of JobsOhio.  ProgressOhio’s Brian Rothenberg had sued on behalf of taxpayers.

“What a long strange trip,” he said after the decision was announced.

The case has been tied up in court for more than a year.

The ruling means the Ohio Supreme Court will not decide the issue of whether the Legislature’s creation of JobsOhio was constitutional. Rothenberg says he’s not sure where his group will go from here since the court says someone else does have standing to sue but doesn’t identify who that is. He says ProgressOhio will be looking at another way to get answers to its questions about JobsOhio.
