City of Cleveland v. State of Ohio, Case No. 2018-0097
Eighth District Court of Appeals (Cuyahoga County)

- Is R.C. 9.75 - which prohibits public authorities from requiring contractors on public improvement projects to hire a certain number or percentage of residents - within the state legislature's authority under the Ohio Constitution to pass laws for the general welfare of employees?
- Does R.C. 9.75 infringe on the city of Cleveland's home-rule authority under the Ohio Constitution to mandate that contractors working on city public improvement projects devote a specific percentage of the hours worked on projects to employees who are city residents?
