Ohio Supreme Court Rules Against Blog Wanting Kasich's Schedule
The Ohio Supreme Court has agreed with Governor John Kasich in a battle over releasing his public schedule.
Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler reports.
The progressive blog Plunderbund, which has been critical of Gov. Kasich, wanted to know more about Gov. Kasich’s schedule. Editor Joe Mismas said it didn’t make sense that the Department of Public Safety had released reports of other security concerns in the Statehouse garage, but wouldn’t release similar records that included threats against the governor.
“If they can do this with these records, what other records can they do this with? Where is the limitation there?”
But the Ohio Supreme Court ruled unanimously that these are “security records” used to protect the safety of the governor and his family, and therefore are exempt from the state’s public records law.
