Ohio court wants new trial over Native American tablet

COLUMBUS

A state appeals court says there should be a new trial to determine who should get ownership of a prehistoric Native American tablet.

The Franklin County Court of Appeals overruled a decision that awarded ownership of the tablet to the Ohio Historical Society rather than to the estate of a man who discovered it as a boy.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the Adena tablet dates to between 500 B.C. and A.D. 100.

It has been displayed at the Ohio Historical Center in Columbus since 1971 when the society acquired it from Edward Low.

Low asked for the tablet’s return in 2007, saying he lent it to the Historical Society. He sued after they denied his request.

He died in 2010, but his widow is continuing the legal fight.
