Ohio Supreme Court denies Freshwater mandamus motion

The Ohio Supreme Court today denied John Freshwater’s motion for a writ of mandamus to compel Board of Education members to testify at the administrative hearing on his termination. The Court web site says only

09/30/09 DECISION: Upon consideration pursuant to S.Ct.Prac.R. X(5), cause (sic) dismissed

According to a news report (see also here) the justices voted 7-0 to deny the motion. Since it is a procedural issue, the Court will not elaborate in an opinion.

No word yet on what effect that will have on the course of the hearing.
