OAJ SIDEBAR

NOVEMBER 12, 2016

Supreme Court race goes down to the wire 
We’ll learn on November 29 whether Judge John O’Donnell has received enough absentee and provisional votes to catch his opponent, Judge Pat Fischer.  On Election Day, O’Donnell trailed by 24,000 votes or 0.6%.  County Boards of Election are now counting those additional votes and will report their official results to the Ohio Secretary of State by the 29th.  Then, if the margin is less than 0.25%, there will be an automatic recount.  

Ohio General Assembly returns 
State lawmakers have convened for lame duck session, which is a dangerous time as many bad bills that were previously thought to be buried have been resurrected.  Here are several bills on which OAJ is advocating: 

  • “No pay, no play” (HB 279): denies an uninsured drive the right to recover noneconomic damages.  The bill has passed the House and is now pending in the Senate Insurance Committee.  OAJ opposes the bill. 
  • WC for firefighters who incur cancer (SB 27): provides that a firefighter who is disabled as a result of cancer is presumed for workers’ comp and pension disability program to have incurred the cancer while working.  The bill has passed the Senate and is now pending in the House Insurance Committee.  OAJ supports extending WC coverage, but has concerns with some of the language in the bill. 
  • Medical negligence tort reform (HB 559): makes a physician’s statement of fault inadmissible as evidence; eliminates liability for loss of chance claims; and eight other “reforms.”  The bill is pending in the House Judiciary Committee.  OAJ opposes the bill.
  • “Sexual predator protection act” (SB 268): rolls back Ohio civil rights laws related to employment and the statute of limitations for other specified claims against an employer.  The bill is pending in the Senate Civil Justice Committee.  OAJ opposes the bill.

Save the Date for this Year's 2017 Annual Convention
This year's Annual Convention will be held May 3rd-5th at the Hilton at Easton in Columbus, Ohio. Stay tuned for more information coming soon!
