When it comes to campaign financing and Ohio's Supreme Court, one sitting justice admitted he felt like a "hooker down by the bus station." Millions are spent to get justices elected to the Ohio Supreme Court. A recent report suggests donors get what they pay for: victories in the court room. New York Times reporter Adam Liptak, who examined the court, will talk about how big money has changed the make up of the court and its decisions. We'll also talk to one judge who refuses to take a dime. Join us Friday morning on The Sound of Ideas.


Jim Robenalt, attorney, business litigation partner, Thompson Hine and trustee of Ohio Bar Association; Adam Liptak, New York Times reporter; Catherine Turcer, legislative director, Ohio Citizen Action; Judge Bill O'Neill, 11th District Court of Appeals and candidate for Ohio Supreme Court; Judge Dick Ambrose, Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas
