Ohio Supreme Court Ruling Gets Backlash


An attorney representing newspapers that sued for unredacted autopsy reports of the eight murdered members of the Rhoden family is criticizing a State Supreme Court ruling shielding those reports. 

The Ohio Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that the Pike County Coroner does not have to release the reports with complete information on the eight family members shot to death near Piketon last year. 

The Columbus Dispatch and the Cincinnati Enquirer separately sued for access to the full autopsies. 

Cincinnati attorney Jack Greiner says the decision sets a negative precedent that will allow police to block autopsies by declaring them investigatory records.
