Tom Fusonie, a partner in the Vorys Columbus office, was quoted in a Toledo Blade story titled “Lake Erie Bill of Rights ruled invalid by Judge Zouhary.”  The story was about the decision by U.S. District Judge Jack Zouhary to invalidate the Lake Erie Bill of Rights (LEBOR) on February 27, 2020.  According to the story, the judge found the law to be “unconstitutionally vague.”  He also indicated that LEBOR “exceeds the power of municipal government in Ohio.”

The story about the ruling stated:

“Thomas H. Fusonie, who argued the case in court on behalf of Drewes Farms, was pleased by the decision.

‘We are happy the Court vindicated our client’s clear constitutional rights,’ Mr. Fusonie, of Columbus-based Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease, wrote in an email. ‘As the Court told the City of Toledo in the opinion, it was not a close call.’”
