The Ohio Supreme Court, ignoring a recently adopted law, said the public has a right to know the names of foster parents assigned by the state to take care of children. The court said the law, which goes into effect May 14, does not apply retroactively. The ruling was 7-0. Access to the information became an issue after a child was killed by foster parents who both had criminal records. (4/18/08)
