Sexual Predators Return to Ask for Legal Protection
Legislation that would decimate Ohio’s existing discrimination laws, including a court decision that holds managers accountable for sexual harassment, was recently introduced in the Ohio Senate.  This bill has been on the Ohio Chamber’s wish list for years, but has never been enacted.  OAJ is working with the Ohio Employment Lawyers Association and a coalition to defeat the bill again this session.

Big Oil Seeks Immunity
A House committee is considering legislation that would grant civil immunity to oil refiners, distributors and gas station owners for damage done to engines when the consumer dispenses incompatible fuel.  Supporters say immunity is needed to allay fears among station owners who fear lawsuits if motorists ruin their engines by dispensing E85 or similar alternative fuels into cars that don’t take these fuels.  But the supporters are unable to point to a single lawsuit in Ohio.  Rick Topper testified against the bill for OAJ.
