Ohio Supreme Court Hears Oral Arguments on Middletown Zoning of Bake/Martin Farmland

On Tuesday, September 6, 2011, the Ohio Supreme Court heard the oral arguments on issues related to the rezoning of the Bake/Martin farmland by the City of Middletown.  Many of the Ohio Supreme Court justices made some VERY pointed comments to the City of Middletown's attorney, echoing concerns expressed over the last 3 1/2 years by those opposing the construction of the SunCoke facility in the middle of a school, nursing home and residential area. 

There was a similar, but different case in Blanchester, also heard before the Middletown case, which is referenced in the Middletown oral arguments.  That link is also available.
