Bexley City Council will consider a discrimination ordinance that would include members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. The move follows a lesbian couple who spoke out about a local wedding photographer who declined their business due to their their sexual orientation.
Ohio Justices Order Six-Month Suspension For Ex-AG
The Ohio Supreme Court has ordered a six-month law license suspension for former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann.
The ruling Tuesday means Dann can’t work as an attorney during the suspension, a punishment connected to his 2008 resignation amid a sexual harassment scandal.
Dann, a Democrat, also pleaded guilty in 2010 to improperly paying two aides from political and office accounts and failing to disclose campaign expenses.
The state Disciplinary Counsel had asked for a year-long suspension. It said Dann tarnished the reputation of the office and noted that no other Ohio attorney general has ever been subject to discipline.
Dann had argued for a six-month suspension that would have allowed him to keep working as a lawyer.
