Law’s Atiba Ellis talks about Ohio Supreme Court’s decision to protect drag queen public performances

Drag queens grateful after Ohio Supreme Court removes performance ban from ballot
WCPOAtiba Ellis, the Laura B. Chisholm Distinguished Research Scholar and professor of law, discussed the Ohio Supreme Court’s underlying reasoning for removing a proposal to ban public performances from a city’s ballot. Rather than being about LGBT rights, Ellis explained, the decision was related to a procedural issue. “This court has made clear that there can’t be a change in the middle of the process because the law is intended to protect the voters from bait and switch tactics,” Ellis said.
