I have to differ with you concerning the admission
of Ohio to the union. I have a copy of the HJR121
which became public law 204 and nowhere on that
documnet does it state that it was done nunc pro
tunc. It is in fact an ex post facto law which
is prohibited by the Constitution.
: The act admitting Ohio into the union was done Nunc Pro Tunc, which means literally "now for then." Procedures done Nunc Pro Tunc cause the result to be as if the action was done initiall
: In other words, the act of Congress in 1953 basically said that as the result of "clerical error" the formalization of the admission of Ohio into the Unio was "fumbled."
: Whether that proceeding was right, wrong, lawful, unlawful is irrelevant. Until such time as some successfully challenges its validity, it gives the effect of validity of all preceeding actions or events relating to Ohio and its statehood.
