The ACLU of Ohio has joined a nationwide lawsuit to force the release of documents on the implementation of President Trump’s ban on immigration from Muslim-majority countries.

The suit comes after the ACLU filed Freedom of Information requests for the documents in February, just after President Trump's first travel ban was announced. There’s been no response, so now ACLU chapters across the country have filed suits to compel the release of the documents.

The owner of the Rubber Bowl says plans to renovate the arena into a viable venue are being stymied by the City of Akron. It's the latest incarnation of Tean 1 Marketing's  plans for the crumbling football stadium, and city officials have expressed concern they could be left with a facility they don't want and can't maintain.

The Cleveland International Film Festival completed its annual FilmSlam program today with a documentary about Gordon Gund. And as WKSU’s Kabir Bhatia reports, students from area schools even got to ask Gund questions about his life with retinitis pigmentosa.

The University of Akron introduced its new basketball coach today. John Groce comes to Akron after spending the past decade at Ohio University and Illinois, where he notched a combined four NCAA tournament wins.

WKSU sports commentator Terry Pluto says Groce will be a good fit in Akron, since he’s had some success in the Mid-American Conference, and he knows the Midwest.
