The objective of this article is to inform the reader of what Ohio has done over the past six years to address the perceived danger of hostile takeovers. This comment will focus almost exclusively on the Ohio Control Share Acquisition Act, since it is the author's belief that this Act represents the strongest legislative barrier to hostile takeovers. This article will commence by discussing the circumstances in which the Ohio Control Share Acquisition Act was created, continue by examining its most important provisions, and conclude by depicting the Act's constitutional battles in the federal courts.
