Judge Leaving OSU Board Of Trustees
A federal district judge is resigning his seat as an Ohio State University trustee to resolve an ethics investigation over his job teaching at the university's law school. An agreement with the state Ethics Commission calls for Judge Algenon Marbley to leave next month and teach law classes without pay in the spring and fall semesters. The deal resolves an investigation into whether Marbley violated state law by teaching at a university where he also serves as a trustee. Ohio State says Marbley met a four-fold test allowing the arrangement.
