ORP Chair Bennett on OSBA Supreme Court Ratings

COLUMBUS - In response to the OSBA judicial ratings released for Supreme Court candidates Chairman Bennett released the following statement:

"Judge Kennedy's decision to pursue a seat on the Supreme Court has always been grounded in the notion that the people of Ohio deserve a judicial system which places their interests above the influence of trial lawyers and career judges committed to legislating from the bench. This rating neglects the fact that Sharon Kennedy's experience as a judge, police officer, and someone who understands that the role of a Justice is limited to the powers enumerated in the Constitution, is desperately needed on the Supreme Court."
