Is Law Authorizing Removal of County Treasurer Without a Hearing Unconstitutional On Its Face?
State ex rel. Gary D. Zeigler, Stark County Treasurer v. Jaime Allbritain [Kenneth N. Koher], Stark County Treasurer, Case no. 2010-1570
Original Action in Quo Warranto (Stark County)
ISSUE: Does a state law that authorizes a county board of commissioners to remove a county treasurer from office “immediately on the institution” of a lawsuit seeking recovery of funds missing from the county treasury facially violate the due process provisions for removal of a public official set forth in Article 38, Section II of the Ohio Constitution?
