Associate Professor Micah Berman quoted in Ohio Capital Journal concerning COVID-19

Associate Professor Micah Berman was recently quoted in Ohio Capital Journal titled, “Lawmakers send bill to governor to kneecap health department authority.”

Berman, a public health law professor, said the legislation doesn’t define “quarantine” or “isolation” and that it’s unclear whether a stay-at-home order counts as a quarantine.

“It strikes me as bad lawyering and bad legislative drafting,” he said. “I don’t know how a court could possibly make sense of what this bill says.”
