Ohio Supreme Court denies school board motion

The Mount Vernon Board of Education lost a last-ditch effort to keep significant portions of John Freshwater’s appeal from being heard by the Ohio Supreme Court.

The court on Wednesday denied the board’s “motion to strike propositions of law 1 & 2, appendix pages 49 & 55-56, and supplement pages 103-116 from [Freshwater’s] merit brief.”

The decision by the court means that all of the issues presented in the merit brief will be considered, the text of the First Amendment will remain in the merit brief and the newly introduced evidence, discrediting a board witness, will be considered.
