Foster parent request reaches Ohio Supreme Court

by Gregory Korte on January 9, 2008

My colleague Jon Craig reports:

Attorneys argued before the Ohio Supreme Court Tuesday whether the names and addresses of foster care parents should be public record. …

Enquirer reporter Gregory Korte made a public records request shortly after the August 2006 death of 3-year-old Marcus Fiesel, seeking an electronic database of all foster homes in Ohio. … The Enquirer reported in March that Hamilton County court officials discovered 27 foster parents had arrest records.
