School reopening triggers lawsuits in Ohio, other states

Dayton Daily News |

A round-up lawsuits concerning re-opening in Ohio, California, Florida, Iowa, Massachusetts, and Oregon.

In Ohio:

  • The Ohio School Boards Association filed a “friend of the court” brief, asking the court to “preserve the local authority of boards of education.”
  • A family sued the Upper Arlington school district in Columbus (as well as the Franklin County health commissioner), after the schools announced plans to open the year in an online, remote-learning model. Their lawsuit says “there is no reliable scientific evidence that establishes a causal relationship between the spread of COVID-19 and options for in-person instruction.”
