2.08.19 – One of the last ‘acts’ that Mike DeWine did as Ohio Attorney General was to file a motion to dismiss the gerrymandering lawsuit that is in front of a three-judge panel in federal court in Cincinnati.

Thus, the lawsuit will continue as scheduled on March 4 moving forward to fairer congressional districts.
