COLUMBUS, OH (WCMH) — Another lawsuit against the Ohio Department of Health Director regarding COVID-19 business restrictions has been filed. A group of 40 daycares is suing interim ODH director Lance Himes and former director Dr. Amy Acton.
The lawsuit was filed by the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law Tuesday on behalf of the daycares, including six in Central Ohio. They claim the ODH director’s May 29 order on the number of children daycares may supervise is “arbitrary” and “unlawful.”

- BRIGHT STAR ACADEMY LLC (Dublin)
- CHAMBERS HOLDINGS, INC. (Westerville)
- N&E LEARNING, LLC (Pickerington)
- VDKC INC. (Lewis Center)
