On Wednesday I noted that a federal district court, in the SEIU case on remand from the Sixth Circuit, has expanded the number of provisional ballots which Ohio must count because of poll worker error to include ballots cast by voters in the wrong location (and not just the wrong precinct).  The judge issued the order orally and promised a written opinion

Here is the opinion.  No word yet if the state will appeal to the Sixth Circuit—and there may yet be action in the Sixth Circuit’s first ruling in this case.  I’ll have more on this soon.
