Constitutional Law: Media wrap on today’s big win overruling Dr. Amy Acton and opening Ohio’s gyms

Finney Law Firm, attorney Curt C. Hartman and the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law won a great victory for Ohio citizens today when Judge Eugene Lucci of Lake County Common Pleas Court ruled unconstitutional the broad rule-making by Governor Mike DeWine and Dr. Amy Acton (Director of Ohio Department of Health) that has shut down Ohio businesses and locked people in their own homes.

The specific ruling today addressed re-opening Ohio gyms and fitness facilities, but the reasoning in the decision broadly finds all of Dr. Acton’s orders are unconstitutional. Read about that here.

Here is a wrap of today’s media coverage of this landmark decision:

I want to recognize the outstanding legal strategizing and implementation of Maurice Thompson of the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law, Curt Hartman, and Julie Gugino and Rebecca L. Simpson of this firm in this case. They did simply outstanding work on a series of cases holding Dr. Acton’s feet to the fire as to her authority (or lack thereof) to shut down businesses and incarcerate residents throughout Ohio during the COVID-19 crisis.
