The Ohio Attorney General has decided not to seek cert with the United States Supreme Court. On September 27th, the Sixth Circuit issued an order, which stayed the Sixth Circuit’s decision, which reversed and remanded a lower court decision upholding Ohio’s discriminatory shipping law. The Stay was issued at the request of the Ohio AG, because the AG intended to file a cert petition with the U.S. Supreme Court seeking review of the case.
Today, the AG sent a letter to the Sixth Circuit indicating that it will not seek cert at the U.S. Supreme Court. Thus, the Sixth Circuit’s prior mandate may now be issued. Ohio Mandate letter
