Ohio Supreme Court rules property tax unconsitutional
On March 24, 1997, the Supreme Court of Ohio ruled in a 4-3 decision that the state funding system "fails to provide for a thorough and efficient system of common schools," as required by the Ohio Constitution, and directed the state to find a remedy.
It's important to note that just like legislators, court justices are also human and flaws with prejudices and agendas. Because of this, no law or court ruling can ever be considered absolute justice, especially when it goes against popular opinion. However, sometimes they can be more just, against popular opinion.
Here we have a case that determined property tax was theft, and that it should not be used to raise money for public projects.
You can be sure that this case will be overturned, as most people in governemnt seek to expand the power and role of government, while those who seek to reduce the role of government are typically absent from the political process, save the occasional vote.
