Ohio

Grade: F

Ohio does not have an anti-SLAPP law.


Note: Under Ohio’s Food Disparagement law, a food producer or association of food producers may sue anyone who makes a false statement, or a statement not supported by “reasonable and reliable scientific data,” about a perishable food product that causes damage to a producer of such products.  If the false statements are held to have been made intentionally, a food producer can seek punitive damages.
