The Ohio Supreme Court has decided to tackle employee residency requirements that have been at issue in various communities in Ohio. Without consolidating the matters, the Court will hear separate arguments the same day in 2 cases involving the extent of home rule authority to require employees in Akron (Case No. 2008-0418) and Lima (Case No. 2008-0128) to live where they work. See our prior posts about the 1) the Akron and Lima appeals and 2) the original Summit County Common Pleas Court decision.
