Ohio Supreme Court case: Secretary of State and Board of Elections did not violate the Ohio Constitution, Article II, Section 1f by certifying an initiative petition to be voted upon by the Brecksville electorate.  The initiative petition proposed ordinances, which among other things, would require mayor to write a letter to state and federal legislative leaders stating  that Brecksville citizens in November 2012 voted in support of a constitutional amendment that would effectively overrule Citizens United v. Fed. Election Comm., 558 U.S. 310 (2010), and for the city to hold hearings concerning the impact of certain political donations.  State ex rel. Brecksville v. Husted, 2012-Ohio-4530.
