Nelson M. Reid
School District Board of Education v. Village
Trial victory obtained in favor of a school district, allowing the construction of a multi-million dollar sports, storage and bus facility project to proceed. This dispute arose after the village revised its zoning code during the district’s planning process for the new facility. Bricker attorneys Nelson Reid and Tarik Kershah established that the facility would have been permitted under the previous zoning code, the district has immunity from the village’s zoning code under the Brownfield Doctrine, and also brought to light the minimal impact that the overall project would have on the surrounding area.

Unanimous ruling against controversial ballot issue
Represented the Ohio Renal Association in an original action brought in the Ohio Supreme Court resulting in a favorable 7-0 ruling. At issue was a controversial ballot issue related to the provision of dialysis services. The opposition, who represented out-of-state interests, collected signatures to place on the ballot an industry-altering price control measure in the form of an amendment to the Ohio Constitution. By using state-of-the-art technology built by the firm to facilitate ballot review and petition signature analysis, Bricker's legal team proved that the ballot proponents violated Ohio law thereby disqualifying the issue from voter consideration.
