Greater Cincinnati Plumbing Contractors' Association, et al. v. City of Blue Ash

Our firm represented the City of Blue Ash, Ohio, in a suit brought by trade associations and contractors challenging the legality of the city's use of a design-build bidding process for renovation of the city recreation center.  The court of appeals determined that the city's use of the desgin-build bidding process was a proper exercise of its home-rule power, and affirmed the lower court ruling granting of the city's motion for summary judgment.
