In our September 2011 edition we reported on the ruling of the Ohio Supreme Court in ESPN v. Ohio State University, an action brought by the network to compel the school to release unredacted versions of internal correspondence relating to the suspension of several players.  In a letter dated October 4, the court denied OSU's motion to submit the case to mediation and settle out of court.  With the denial of this motion, the court proceeded with the calendar set in the September 21 court order, and evidence was submitted by the parties October 11 on the merits of the dispute.
