ACLU of Ohio

Under this agreement between the ACLU of Ohio and Secretary of State Frank LaRose's office, those voters who have recently been removed from the rolls will be able to vote after all.

The ACLU of Ohio is asking a federal court to permanently block a ban on abortion as early as six weeks into pregnancy. Pro-choice advocates had secured an order to temporarily stop the so called “heartbeat law” from going into effect as planned in July. Here's what is happening with the latest court filing. 

A total of $5 million dollars will be paid to male employees at JP Morgan Chase who were denied the same parental leave policies as female employees if a federal court approves a class action lawsuit settlement filed today in a federal court in Ohio. 

The group that sued over Ohio’s Congressional district map says there’s still time to draw a new one for next year's election if lawmakers are ordered to do that, even though the US Supreme Court on Friday delayed a lower court’s order to do so by June 14.

ACLU of Ohio filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday challenging Ohio’s recent “heartbeat” abortion ban, which was signed into law last month.

Once again, the ACLU of Ohio is pushing for criminal justice reform with a new report on what it calls the “Statehouse to prison pipeline”. 

Organizations are grumbling about a requirement from the Ohio Department of Education to include a faith-based group for a mentorship program.

The state’s leading civil rights organization is planning a public records request to find out more about a state-supported mentoring program for schools. 

Ohio Superintendent of Public Instruction Richard Ross, who is an appointee of Gov. John Kasich, says schools that want to join the Community Connections program can partner with a business or a non-profit. But must also have a faith-based organization on board.

The Ohio chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union is asking the state's attorney general to be included in the commission studying Ohio's new facial recognition program.

The organization on Wednesday sent a letter to Attorney General Mike DeWine saying it believes it is "necessary and appropriate" that it has a voice on the commission because of its unique understanding of privacy law.

Governor Kasich has signed into law a bill to prohibit abortion coverage by health plans operating in the new insurance exchanges that were laid out in the federal health care overhaul.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio has claimed the measure is unconstitutional and has said it would fight it in court.

The ACLU of Ohio says the ban on abortion coverage violates a voter-backed state constitutional amendment that says no law or rule should prohibit the purchase or sale of health care or insurance.
