News / State of Ohio files motions to dismiss DRO lawsuit (Ball v. Kasich)

On June 27, 2016, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) and the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) jointly filed a motion to dismiss in the Ball v. Kasich lawsuit.  Governor Kasich filed a separate motion to dismiss later the same day. The remaining defendant, Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities, filed its motion to dismiss on May 9.

The defendants cite several reasons why they believe the lawsuit should not be permitted to continue. The state contends that past lawsuits have already settled the questions posed by Ball v. Kasich. A full summary of the opinion, including legal definitions, timelines for next steps, and other information, has been assembled in the form of an FAQ document for OACB members and stakeholders. OACB will continue monitoring this lawsuit very closely and will notify members and stakeholders of future developments as they occur.
