High court to hear JobsOhio suit

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio Supreme Court will step in to the fight over the legality of JobsOhio.

The high court ruled yesterday that it will decide whether the liberal policy group ProgressOhio has the legal standing to question the legality of using Ohio’s liquor profits to fund the private economic development agency.

Two lower courts denied the group’s right to file a complaint.

ProgressOhio has been joined in the suit by some Democratic lawmakers and the Tea Party group the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law has filed a friend-of-the-court action in support.
