COLUMBUS, Ohio—"A Franklin County judge on Monday blocked the collection and distribution of the House Bill 6 nuclear bailout fee, which Ohio ratepayers were scheduled to start paying next month.

Common Pleas Judge Chris Brown’s blockbuster ruling comes as state lawmakers dither on what, if anything, to do about the $1 billion-plus nuclear bailout in HB 6, the law that ex-House Speaker Larry Householder allegedly pushed through using the largest bribery scheme in Ohio history."
