Law’s Michael Benza weighs in on case against ex-Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder

Cuyahoga County grand jury foreperson lobbied publicly for House Bill 6. Why was he allowed to hear case against Larry Householder?

Cleveland Plain DealerMichael Benza, professor of practice at the School of Law, discussed the case of a politically connected local labor leader who served as the foreperson for a grand jury that returned a new criminal indictment Monday against ex-Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder—a development that Benza noted could raise questions about the impartiality of the process and that could pose future legal issues for Attorney General Dave Yost’s case.
