COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's high court has set oral arguments in a case over whether opponents of the private economic development entity created by Republican Gov. John Kasich have the standing to sue.

Lawyers on both sides of the suit involving JobsOhio will address the Ohio Supreme Court on Nov. 6.

Lower courts have so far rejected a legal challenge to JobsOhio brought by the liberal policy group ProgressOhio and two Democratic state lawmakers.

They have stopped short of ruling on the constitutionality of the nonprofit job-creation board, saying the parties cannot show harm and so do not have standing to sue.

Opponents argue the law created an impossibly small window in which they had to both experience harm and file their legal challenge.

The high court intends to settle the question.
