Ohio Supreme Court rejects statehouse maps, ending hopes of full May primary

Source: Columbus Dispatch

The Ohio Supreme Court struck down the third set of state House and Senate maps late Wednesday, effectively ending any hope of a May 3rd primary with both legislative and statewide races.

The decision marks the third time the Ohio Supreme Court has rejected legislative maps drawn by the Ohio Redistricting Commission. Once again, Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor, a Republican, was the deciding vote in a 4-3 decision.

By invalidating the maps, the court effectively ends any chance that Ohio will hold a primary for all statewide, legislative, congressional and local races on May 3. Election officials had been working to send ballots with the now-rejected statehouse districts to voters in the military and overseas as soon as Friday.

Now, Ohio lawmakers will be tasked with either splitting or delaying primary elections – a costly decision Republicans who control the Legislature had hoped to avoid.

Chris Cuomo wants $125 million for 'unlawful' CNN firing

NEW YORK (AP) — Chris Cuomo wants an arbitrator to award him $125 million for his firing from CNN, alleging his bosses knew full well how he advised his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and suggested they did the same themselves.

His filing seeking arbitration on Wednesday exposed more ugliness at the network, where Cuomo, CNN chief Jeff Zucker and his top deputy, Allison Gollust, have all been ousted in the past three months.

Zucker fired Cuomo, host of the network’s most popular prime time show, in December after a New York Attorney General’s report publicly revealed new details about how he helped his brother strategize to fight sexual harassment allegations.

“It should be obvious by now that Chris Cuomo did not lie to CNN about helping his brother,” said his lawyer, Bryan Freedman. “In fact, as the limited information released from Warner Media’s investigation makes clear, CNN’s highest-level executives not only knew about Chris’ involvement in helping his brother but also actively assisted the governor, both through Chris and directly themselves.”
