Open Meetings Update: Finney Law Firm – And City – File Opposition to Motion to Intervene

Hon. Judge Ruehlman

Today Finney Law Firm, on behalf of our client Mark Miller, filed a memorandum in opposition to the recent motion filed by one-time City Council candidate Derek Bauman, to intervene in our Open Meetings Act suit against five members of the Cincinnati City Council.

Attorneys for the City of Cincinnati also filed a memorandum opposing the intervention.

Judge Robert Ruehlman has scheduled oral argument on the motion for July 30 at 11:30 a.m. in Room 300 of the Hamilton County Courthouse, 1000 Main Street, Cincinnati, Ohio. The public is welcome to attend the oral argument.

We oppose intervention because the filing appears to be a poorly disguised effort at political gamesmanship rather than a sincere piece of litigation. Read the Motion to Intervene here. Read our memorandum here or below. Read the City’s memorandum here.
