Maurice_ThompsonOn Tuesday, Maurice Thompson of the Ohio 1851 Center for Constitutional Law filed a lawsuit for a “writ of mandamus and prohibition” related to the legal legitimacy of the Ohio Controlling Board using administrative means to achieve Obamacare Medicaid expansion in Ohio.

From the complaint,

“Despite political sharp political overtones associated with expansion of Medicaid spending and eligibility in Ohio, this case is not about whether the controversial and highly-contested expansion is wise public policy. Rather, the salient and critical legal issue before the Court is whether the Executive Branch of government may effectuate such a major policy change administratively – – not only without a vote of the Ohio General Assembly, but over the objections of the General Assembly, as expressed through its unambiguous acts.”
