OAJ SIDEBAR

DECEMBER 8, 2016

Ohio legislature adjourns today
State lawmakers are expected to adjourn today, thus concluding the 131rst session of the Ohio General Assembly.  Legislation that has not passed must be reintroduced next year when the next General Assembly begins. 

Here is what happened with the major bills on which OAJ was advocating: 

  • No pay, no play” (HB 279): denies an uninsured driver the right to recover noneconomic damages.  +++ Died in the Senate Insurance Committee +++
  • WC for firefighters who incur cancer (SB 27): establishes a presumption 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.  +++ passed legislature, awaits Governor’s signature +++
  • 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.”  +++ Died in the House Judiciary Committee +++
  • 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.  +++ Died in the Senate Civil Justice Committee +++

Pfeifer to lead Ohio Judicial Conference
Justice Paul Pfeifer, who must step down at year’s end from the Court, has been tapped to serve as Executive Director of the OJC, a statewide organization of judges.  Established by statute, the Conference is separate from the Supreme Court and consists of all Ohio judges and representatives of the six judicial associations.  The Conference has been lauded by state jurists for its work but also was targeted for elimination in the last budget bill.
