GPI Distributors Inc. v. Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District

Petition for certiorari denied on April 20, 2020
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-857 Ohio Ct. App. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2019

Issue: Whether the due process and equal protection clauses prohibit states from imposing substantial financial burdens on indigent parties seeking judicial review (as at least six states have held), or whether states effectively deprive low-income litigants of access to the judicial system (as at least five states have held)—even when the court access in question represents the party’s first opportunity to obtain meaningful judicial review of an involuntary property taking.
