Our Public Records Victory at the Supreme Court of Ohio

We obtained a rather huge victory for all Ohio residents last week.   We won a Supreme Court of Ohio case which held that we were entitled to a large number of lead poisoning records from the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority ("CMHA").   We had sought to learn as much as we could on how many children had been poisoned by lead paint at CMHA in the last 20 years.  CMHA violated Ohio law by refusing to produce ANY records concerning leading poisoning issues at CMHA.  The Cuyahoga County Court of Appeals ordered the records produced and awarded sanctions against CMHA.  CMHA appealed to the Ohio Supreme Court - and lost.   This is a victory for our firm but also a victory for all of the citizens of Ohio - because public records are owned by the citizens of the State of Ohio - not the public employee cronies who do not want the public to know how they have failed to protect children from lead poisoning at CMHA housing.     Stay tuned for more details to follow.  We expect more nonsense from CMHA - they don't want us to see what they have either done or not done.
