I just did a quick search on the Plain Dealer’s website and not a peep about this story.

From the Court of Appeals of Ohio, Eighth Appellate District, County of Cuyahoga:

{¶1} For purposes of this opinion, the appeals of both appellants Erin McCardle and Leatrice Tolls have been consolidated.

1 {¶2} Appellants Erin McCardle and Leatrice Tolls appeal their convictions for violating Cleveland Codified Ordinances 559.541 (“CCO 559.541”), which prohibits remaining, without a permit, between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m., on an area of downtown Cleveland, Ohio known as Public Square, specifically, the Tom L. Johnson quadrant.

2 They assign the following error for our review:

I. Cleveland Cod. Ord. 559.541 is unconstitutional under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution.

{¶3} Having reviewed the record and pertinent law, we reverse and remand the trial court’s decision.

I’m ready to start cooking again. Is anyone ready to accept delivery?
