This blog post by attorney Stephen Richmond of the Cleveland and Columbus law firm of Kohrman Jackson Krantz features our important twin class action victories in federal court in challenging municipal post of sale and rental inspection ordinances as violations of the Fourth Amendment (unconstitutional warrantless searches) to the United States Constitution.
We co-counseled these cases with attorney Maurice Thompson of the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law, which uses litigation strategies to advance the cause of free enterprise throughout Ohio.
This blog entry actually misses the first in a series of point-of-sale warrantless search cases in Ohio, our challenge in 2014 an ordinance in the City of Portsmouth, Ohio. That decision from 2015 by Federal District Court Judge Susan J. Dlott is reported here.
Importantly, the Finney Law Firm challenges and confronts zoning and land use enforcement actions by municipalities using all of the legal tools at the disposal of our clients, including the United States Constitution.
It explains the issues well.
