- The Ohio Supreme Court has ruled that the Cincinnati officer suing for defamation cannot remain anonymous. Cincinnati Police Officer Ryan Olthaus sued a group of citizens after accusing him of using a racist sign at a Cincinnati City Council meeting during the 2020 George Floyd protests. Originally, a local judge granted Olthaus anonymity with a sealed affidavit, but the state Supreme Court overturned that motion on Thursday. (WKRC TV Cincinnati)
