Homeless Group Suing Over Courthouse Cleanup
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Hamilton County's attempt to clean up people sleeping on the steps and urinating outside the courthouse downtown is running into legal opposition now from the city's homeless coalition.
The group says it will file a federal lawsuit tomorrow to block the Sheriff's Deputies from taking steps against the homeless there.
Starting Thursday, deputies were to start asking people to leave and potentially threatening arrest if they don't.
The homeless coalition's position is that it's not illegal to be homeless and, if the county opened up public restrooms, that would take care of the other health and cleanliness concerns.
