The Republican Ohio Supreme Court justice challenged for accepting an invitation to speak to a Toledo anti-abortion group after the Court agreed to hear an appeal involving an abortion clinic has declined to recuse herself from the case.

Sharon Kennedy says she reviewed a request by Capital Care Network and found it "without merit." An ethics complaint against Kennedy was dismissed earlier this year.
