One of two complaints filed over a Republican Ohio Supreme Court justice's speech to a Toledo Right To Life Group has been dismissed.

The complaints alleged Justice Sharon Kennedy violated the Ohio Code of Judicial Conduct by speaking after the court agreed to hear an appeal involving an area abortion clinic. She denied any wrongdoing. A separate complaint from a coalition of groups and individuals sought a disciplinary counsel investigation.
