OCOG to support Enquirer in major open government cases

From Ohio Newspaper Association:   The board of the Ohio Coalition for Open Government has voted to support appeals in two Cincinnati-area cases involving Enquirer Media.

One case involves access to 911 calls and the other involves a Hamilton County juvenile court judge who was found in contempt after barring a reporter from her courtroom and attempting to ban publication or broadcast of the alleged offenders’ name.

The board felt that both cases raised significant legal issues while also providing strong factual situations that could affirm the importance of open government. OCOG Counsel David Marburger of Baker & Hostetler in Cleveland will represent OCOG in the cases.
