The Supreme Court of Ohio ruled on July 1, 2009 in Roe v. Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio Region that, under the state laws in force at the time their claim arose in a private civil lawsuit against Planned Parenthood, the parents of a Cincinnati teenager who obtained an abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic are not entitled to discover confidential child abuse reports or medical records of other minors who were treated at the same clinic. Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease represented Planned Parenthood in this action related to medical privacy.
