Ohio Supreme Court Rules Against Cuyahoga County in Copier Case

The property records fiasco in Cuyahoga County — detailed for the health of everyone's funny bone in deposition testimony that featured a debate on the definition of "photocopy," and more extensively in Scene's cover story on the issue — has come to an end.

The Ohio Supreme Court ruled 7-0 today that Cuyahoga County must provide property records on CD for $1 for those who request them and can not charge hundreds of thousands of dollars ($2 a page) like they wanted to, according to Cleveland.com

So have at it, Cuyahogians. All the property and deed information you could ever want now costs $1. Make a request. Make 17 requests. Ask if they can use the extra storage space on the disc to make you a mix tape. Go nuts. The county just spent $55,000 in legal fees and they lost, so they're probably in a bad mood. Expect a lot of Dashboard Confessional.
