Resource ID: #21313
Subject: Public Records
Source: Cleveland Plain Dealer
Date: June 13



This was a collaboration of newspapers across the state and the Associated Press, all of whom performed an audit of Ohio's open-records law. Included in our database are stories from the Plain Dealer, the Toledo Blade and the Columbus Dispatch. Although different papers approached the audit differently, there was a consistent stream of cases in which officials either denied access to public records or made access extremely difficult. The Toledo Blade found that local officials complied with the law only about half the time with schools being the more frequent deniers of access.
