Appeal Accepted on Ohio and Federal Constitutional Law Issue

The Court formally accepted the appeal earlier this week. Fewer than 7% of civil appeals are accepted by the Court.

The case presents a substantial issue of constitutional law pertaining to parental rights. The lower court’s decision can be read here.
