News stories in the daily articles are selected after the consideration of certain criteria, including the following: the article contains specific search terms (such as “Ohio Supreme Court” or the name of a Justice), concerns a case before the Supreme Court, concerns a case of great general interest to the judicial and legal community, references major events or trends in law and comes from a publication of general circulation. News stories will not be included if they contain profanity or vulgarity or come from a publication that defines its circulation and audience in terms of a special interest. Exclusively political stories will not be included, except stories about the announcement of a candidacy for judicial office, major editorial endorsements of candidates for judicial office, and the outcome of judicial elections.
