According to their summary as of 10/10/2020,

The Ohio Democratic Party and other plaintiffs seek a declarative judgment that Ohio law does not limit counties to one drop box for absentee ballots, nor does it limit their location to county boards of elections, despite the Secretary of State's earlier instruction to the contrary. The plaintiffs also seek a temporary and permanent injunction against the enforcement of the Secretary's one-dropbox-per-county rule.
