Trustees' attorney ignores state law

Perkins Township attorney John Coppeler has some guts when it comes to ignoring his legal responsibilities.

"If your experts claim that because it's voted on in a public meeting that it's public record, there ought to be some authority that they are relying on," Coppeler said.

That would be the Ohio Revised Code, Mr. Coppeler. The Ohio Revised Code.

Coppeler's explanation for withholding documents related to the proposed settlement in the McClung-Matthews lawsuit against Perkins Township trustee Bill Dwelle and the township is simply ridiculous.

And irresponsible.
