Oral arguments before the Ohio Supreme Court in the case of
John Freshwater's termination as a middle school science teacher were
held on February 27. News coverage is already out there: the Columbus
Dispatch and HuffPo have stories, and the Mount Vernon News has the most
complete news story, unfortunately behind a subscription wall.
At first blush the oral arguments did [sic] not helpful to the Board.
The Rutherford Institute attorney representing Freshwater, Rita Dunaway,
was polished and answered questions from the justices with facility.
She seemed well-versed on the case and had references to the record and
law at her fingertips. And she stayed on message: She knew the argument
she wanted to make and stuck to it.
