In the case of State ex rel. N. Ohio Chapter of Ass. Builders and Contractors v. Barberton City Schools Bd. of Edn., 2010-Ohio-1826, a construction company, its builders association, and several taxpayers filed a verified complaint against the school board seeking a preliminary and permanent injunction, as well as a declaratory judgment, alleging that the board entered into an illegal contract, exceeded the board’s authority, and abused the board’s discretion by mandating, in the bid specifications for the first phase of a construction project, that the bidders comply with Ohio’s prevailing wage law on the project. McGown & Markling represented the school board before the state trial court, state appellate court, and Ohio Supreme Court; and successfully obtained judgment for the school board because the construction company, builders association, and taxpayers all lacked standing to pursue the underlying legal action against the school board.
