Former Ohio Department of Health director Dr. Amy Acton is one of dozens of public health officials who’ve been fired or resigned during the pandemic because of stress, pushback and even concerns about their safety. One of the lawyers who’s been leading the charge against some of the orders designed to protect public health in Ohio says he’s fine with knowing he might have been a part of Acton’s decision to leave.
