A life-long Ohioan, Esrati is well-known around the state of Ohio for setting First Amendment precedent for comment at limited public forums. In 1997, Esrati donned a ninja mask at a public commission meeting as a form of protest. Then-Mayor Mike Turner had Esrati kicked out of the meeting. In turn, Esrati sued the city of Dayton and ultimately won a long, expensive, and complicated court battle. In 2008, Esrati ran for the U.S. House of Representatives in Ohio's 3rd Congressional District, but lost in the primary.
