(6-28-19) The Ohio Supreme Court will be hearing another case from Mercer County, this one is based on Freedom of Information Act requests that were denied.
Charles Summers filed the FOIA requests that were denied by Mercer County Prosecuting Attorney Matthew Fox. Also listed on the filing is Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey and Mercer County Ohio.
Mercer County lawyers had petitioned the court to issue a judgment based on the pleadings, but with this ruling that was denied by the justices. The court will now rule on the case after both sides have had another chance to make their cases.
This is the second case that the Supreme Court has under consideration from Mercer County in 2019. A first ammenedment appeal case filed in May by Jeff Rasawhehr’s attorneys will also be in front of the Supreme Court justices.
