Plunderbund’s public records case against the Kasich Administration took another step forward today when our lawyer, Victoria Ullmann, and lawyers representing the Ohio Department of Public Safety presented oral arguments in front of the Ohio Supreme Court. Media outlets around the state picked up the story including WOSU , WKSU, the Plain Dealer and even the Dispatch.
The case stems from a record request we made back in 2012 after Kasich’s office refused to release his schedules claiming the governor was receiving “daily” threats. To verify Kasich’s claims, we requested incident reports from the Ohio Highway Patrol related to threats against the Governor. ODPS denied our request outright.
Today we fought back.
