OHIO v. REINER

Per Curiam

possible questions might tend to incriminate her. Batt therefore had a valid Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination.

We do not, of course, address the question whether immunity from suit under 2945.44 was appropriate. Because the Supreme Court of Ohio mistakenly held that the witness' assertion of innocence deprived her of her Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination, the petition for a writ of certiorari is granted, the court's judgment is reversed, and this case is remanded for further proceedings not inconsistent with this opinion.

It is so ordered.
