The Blade filed suit on Friday against the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority for not releasing the report detailing the recent firing of former Port Board President James Hartung. The Blade filed suit in the Ohio Supreme Court after the port board said at 3:45 p.m. it would not release the records. Mr. Hartung was fired on Aug. 1 after 14-years as president of the port board. The firing followed an internal investigation of Mr. Hartung s hiring of a lobbyist, Kathy Teigland, with whom he was accused of having an affair.
