Ohioans have to endure one of the toughest situations in the country when the government takes their land but refuses to acknowledge it.

Supreme Court precedent currently prohibits Ohioans from appealing to federal court to address government property takings. Ohio Farm Bureau’s brief seeks to overturn precedent and gain landowners the option to appeal directly to a federal court.
Ohio Farm Bureau’s first engagement with the Supreme Court of the United States was a special opportunity. On this episode of Legal with Leah, Policy Counsel Leah Curtis shares her experience with us.
