Colts Center Jeff Saturday Part Of Appeal Of ‘Jock Tax’ In Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) _ Cleveland intends to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to rule on the constitutionality of the city's system for taxing visiting professional athletes.

Northeast Ohio Media Group ( ) reports the city filed a motion Wednesday indicating the move. The filing comes after the Ohio Supreme Court ruled that the city's method for taxing athletes based on the number of games played violates players' due process rights.

It ruled that the city must assess taxes based on the number of days each visiting player works in a year.

The filing states that the decision has “important widespread implications.''

At issue were challenges by former Chicago Bears linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer and retired Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday.
