Gambling Challenge Too Late, Ohio Justices Rule

Headline Legal News Posted on

According to Courthouse News, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled that it is too late for gambling opponents to object to a petition for an initiative that would legalize more gambling in Ohio.

The Ohio Jobs and Growth Committee filed a petition in June that, if passed by voters, would allow casino gambling in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus and Toledo.

A horse-track operator objected to the petition, challenging the validity of some of the signatures and addresses.

Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner ruled on July 21 that the petition had enough valid signatures to make it onto the ballot.

In a per-curiam decision, the Ohio Supreme Court justices ruled that Brunner did not have the obligation to investigate the matter further.
