The Ohio Supreme Court ordered that all transaction records related to a $50 million rare-coin investment made on behalf of the Bureau of Workers Compensation be made public. The court by a 5-2 vote rejected the argument that the records are “trade secrets” and thus exempt from the Public Records Act. The suit was brought by the Toledo Blade, which sought the records after reports that as much as $13 million might be missing. (7/14/05)
