Bruce Ingram, a partner in the firm’s Columbus office, was quoted throughout an Akron Legal News article about arguments made before the Ohio Supreme Court regarding Grand Lake St. Marys’ West Bank spillway.
The article states: “The Supreme Court last week ruled in favor of Lake Erie beachfront property owners, finding that public access to the shoreline extends to the natural shoreline — not the high-water mark — of privately owned land. Ingram indicated the court’s rationale behind that ruling is directly linked to the inalienable rights of acquiring, possessing and protecting property as outlined in the Ohio Constitution. ‘We’ll see whether the Ohio Supreme Court continues to say ... that it is critically important to protect the rights of property owners,’ he said.”
