Tom Fusonie, a partner in the Vorys Columbus office, was quoted in an Ohio Country Journal story titled “LEBOR Dead in the Water.” The story was about how the City of Toledo has decided to abandon an appeal defending the Lake Erie Bill of Rights (LEBOR).

The story states:

“After contesting a late-February decision that the Lake Erie Bill of Rights (LEBOR) was invalid, the city of Toledo abandoned its appeal on May 5.

‘The United States District Court found that LEBOR violated Drewes Farms’ constitutional rights and that it was not a close call for the Court. The District Court also found that LEBOR ‘flagrantly’ violated Ohio law,’ said Tom Fusonie, with the law offices of Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP. ‘After aggressively defending LEBOR and appealing the decision invalidating LEBOR, Toledo has now abandoned its appeal. On behalf of our client, Drewes Farms, we are pleased that Toledo has dropped its appeal that would only have caused more legal fees to be incurred. The District Court’s Order protecting Drewes Farms’ constitutional rights and defending the rule of law stands.’”
