COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Supreme Court says the Democratic gubernatorial candidate does not have to provide testimony as he fights a GOP lawsuit trying to force him to release data related to his job as the Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County executive.

The Republican suit asks the court to compel the release as public records of key-card data showing when Ed FitzGerald enters and leaves Cuyahoga County buildings and parking facilities.

The court on Monday granted requests by lawyers for FitzGerald, Cuyahoga County Sheriff Frank Bova and deputy sheriff Paul Soprek to shield them from having to testify.

Lawyers for the Ohio Republican Party argued the three were in the best position to talk about why the material should not be released.
