the challenge Thursday, saying, “Ohio law allows only one race to be challenged in a single complaint.”
RAW STORY spoke with two separate legal experts not associated with the case who declined to be named for concern of their professional careers. A
leading Ohio attorney said that “he had never heard of such a case, but even if this law exists somewhere, several ethical codes are most certainly
