Law’s Lewis Katz explains importance of Cuyahoga County prosecutor race

Cuyahoga County prosecutor race, a moment in history

ideastream: This year’s race for Cuyahoga County prosecutor is the first one since 1956 without an incumbent candidate. In addition, it holds more significance in the wake of the recent corruption scandal. “That’s why this election is so important—we have a new system of county government and we also need an active prosecutor’s office making sure that our new county officials and local officials are acting legally,” said Lewis Katz, the John C. Hutchins Professor of Law.
