Attorney Curt C. Hartman, of counsel with Finney Law Firm, has filed a complaint in the Hamilton County Probate Court to remove Cincinnati Councilmember Tamaya Dennard from office pursuant to R.C. 733.72-76.
A copy of the Complaint is below or available here.
The Complaint was filed on behalf of Mark Miller and four other Cincinnati electors, including State Representative Tom Brinkman.
Under Ohio law when five electors file a complaint alleging that a city official has received payment for her services to the city in addition to her salary; has an interest in a public contract; or is otherwise guilty of malfeasance or misfeasance, the City Solicitor shall prosecute the case before the Probate Court Judge, and, if Dennard is found guilty, she shall be removed from office.
The statute provides that Tamaya Dennard should be ordered to appear before the Probate Court within ten days of the filing of the Complaint.
A press conference is scheduled for 10 a.m. at the Mt. Adams office of Finney Law Firm, 1077 Celestial Street.
