Oberlin pays OFCC's legal fees

Postby rickt » Thu Jun 07, 2018 11:49 am

OBERLIN — Oberlin City Council recently approved paying $31,000 to a gun-rights group for its legal fees after a lawsuit over an Oberlin gun ordinance.

The settlement came after Ohioans for Concealed Carry Inc.’s victory in a lawsuit challenging a 1998 city ordinance banning guns in Oberlin’s public parks.

Ahead of the next hearing on the matter, City Law Director Jon Clark negotiated a settlement with the organization to pay $31,000. The city might be able to win that case, but there still was uncertainty, Clark said Monday.

Because of that uncertainty, Clark suggested the city pay the bill or possibly face a higher penalty at the case’s resolution.


Settlement?
I hope there was full remuneration, not some 50 cents on the dollar type settlement.

OFCC's taken more scalps than Crazy Horse, Cochise and Quanah Parker combined.

It costs money guys. This took nearly five years and although it looks like a large amount, we're still going in the hole on every one of these we win.
Disagreements over the meaning of the phrase "reasonable costs.

Without your memberships and donations, we couldn't do this
Thank you all

In a rational world, one could have a reasonable expectation that the outcome of this case and payment of reasonable legal costs to OFCC would give pause to other Ohio cities that are considering violations of ORC 9.68. Columbus and Cincinnati please take note.
