Abortion Debate Continues

Ohio’s attorney general has asked the Ohio Supreme Court to weigh in on the future of the state’s near-ban on abortions, despite arguing less than six months ago that the same court lacked jurisdiction to determine the paused law’s constitutionality. Attorney General, Dave Yost appealed for the high court’s intervention. The filing came after Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Christian Jenkins preliminarily blocked the law and the First District Court of Appeals denied Yost’s attempt to appeal Jenkins’ ruling. Yost is now asking the Ohio Supreme Court to reverse that ruling, arguing that trial courts that issue such injunctions have every incentive to drag out lower-court proceedings, ensuring their orders remain in effect…and that state laws with which they disagree remain unenforceable…for as long as possible
