OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Ohio Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in City of Cleveland v. State of Ohio, Case no. 2012-1616 on Wednesday, August 21, 2013.    The issue is whether state law governing tow-truck operations (R.C. 4921.25) is a comprehensive, statewide legislative framework and a general law that meets the Supreme Court’s test in Canton v. State, or is the towing law a violation of the Ohio Constitution’s Home Rule Amendment?  Attorneys for the City of Cleveland argue that the preemption language isn’t comprehensive, as Canton requires, because it doesn’t apply to other types of motor carriers.
