The Ohio Supreme Court affirmed a contempt citation against a county court of common pleas judge for disobeying an order of the court of appeals in a juvenile matter.
The order involved media access to the case brought by the Cincinatti Enquirer.
The court of appeals had allowed the paper into court without conditions. The judge then prohibited publication of names. The paper argued that the judge's order was a prior restriant on its right to publish.
The court here rejected the judge's contention that she had complied with the express mandate of the court of appeals' order.
