Participated in an amicus brief (with the Reporters Committee and other amici) filed with the Supreme Court of Ohio in Welsh-Huggins v. Office of the Prosecuting Attorney.  This case concerns a request by an AP reporter for surveillance camera footage of a shooting targeting a judge outside an Ohio courthouse.  A special master of the Court of Claims found the footage subject to release under the Ohio Public Records Act.  The Seventh District Court of Appeals reversed that judgment, applying a de novo standard of review and finding that the footage was a security record.  The reporter appealed to the Ohio Supreme Court.  The amicus brief argues that the Seventh District should have applied an abuse-of-discretion standard and that its expansive view of security records under R.C. 149.433(A) is contrary to Ohio Supreme Court precedent.  [2020]
