The Finney Law Firm has a strength in bringing claims under Ohio’s Open Meetings and Public Records laws, and we are used to seeing amazing defenses that public officials raise to their secretive acts in violation of Ohio law.
But even we were surprised at a counterclaim against a Council member brought on the basis that he refused to raise taxes, and refuses to adopt the “company line” on a host of other initiatives. Maggie Thurber of Ohio’s Watchdog.Org writes, here, about this counterclaim against a Finney Law Firm client. It’s going to be an interesting one!
A copy of the counterclaim is here.
