Jul10 FTC Non-Compete Ban on Life Support
On July 3, 2024, in the case of Ryan LLC et al. v. FTC, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas (“Court”) issued a preliminary injunction staying enforcement of the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Final Rule (“Rule”) prohibiting non-compete agreements for most workers. The preliminary injunction only applies to the parties in that case. It is not a nationwide injunction against the implementation or enforcement of the Rule and does not apply to any other businesses. However, the decision signals that the Rule likely will be found unlawful when a decision on the merits is issued on or before August 30, 2024.

Jul10 Supreme Court Ruling to Have Major Regulatory Impact on Banks
With the overturn of the so called Chevron Doctrine the federal banking regulators will face judicial scrutiny like never before.

Jul03 Electronic Recording, Coming to a County Near You
To date, Ohio has had a laggard and piecemeal approach to electronic recording of mortgages as well as the ability to do electronic title searches. That is about to change. OBL provided testimony multiple times over multiple General Assemblies and it finally paid off with the passage of Senate Bill 94 requiring counties to provide an electronic means of recording instruments and accessing recorded instruments back to 1980 by June 30, 2026. Though long overdue, this means that in a little less than two years, all 88 counties will have electronic recording.
