On May 13, the lawsuit Friedlander v Brunner, 2:10cv-378, was settled out of court. The lawsuit had been filed April 27, 2010, to challenge an Ohio ban on out-of-state circulators for initiative and referendum petitions, and also to challenge a requirement that the circulator's permanent address be entered on each petition sheet. The case had been filed in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati.

The state agreed that the two laws are unconstitutional, and promised not to enforce them. The case had been filed by an official of the Humane Society, and also by Citizens in Charge.
