Proportionality-in-discovery civil rule amendment
OAJ registered its opposition and urges all OAJ members to send comments on the proposed amendment to the civil rules that would adopt proportionality-in-discovery similar to federal rules.  OAJ opposes proportionality and urges the Court not to advance the proposal.  The deadline to submit comments is November 6.  Send comments to Jess Mosser at the Supreme Court of Ohio at:

Contract SOL
Consumers scored a partial victory as a House committee amended legislation to establish the statute of limitations for written contracts at six years and for implied contracts at four years.   Current law is eight years and six years, respectively.  Six and four years are a clear improvement over the original legislation that proposed three years for both.  OAJ opposes the reduction.  The bill is pending in the House Civil Justice Committee but is likely to soon be reported.

Long-arm statute
OAJ member Edmond Mack testified before a House committee in support of OAJ-supported legislation that would amend Ohio’s long-arm personal jurisdiction statute to ensure outsiders who harm Ohio families or businesses can be held accountable in Ohio courts.  The bill is pending in the House Civil Justice Committee.

WC coverage for first responders with PTSD
A House committee held the first hearing on legislation to make police, firefighters and EMTs eligible for workers’ comp coverage when diagnosed with PTSD.  OAJ supports extending coverage to first responders, but has concerns with the legislation as it limits treatment to one year and it offsets WC benefits against disability payments.  The bill remains pending in the House Insurance Committee.

WC firefighter cancer presumption
The cost of workers’ comp coverage for cancer treatment for firefighters would be assessed against a surplus fund at the Bureau of Workers’ Comp, rather than being charged against a municipalities’ premium experience rating.  The bill is intended to persuade cities to stop contesting firefighters’ cancer claims.  OAJ supports the bill, which is pending in the House Insurance Committee.

Employment discrimination
Legislation amending Ohio’s anti-discrimination in employment law has been re-introduced in the Ohio House.  The new bill is the same legislation that was agreed-upon in 2017 between the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, the Ohio Employment Lawyers Association and  OAJ.  OAJ is evaluating its position on the bill, which awaits assignment to a House committee.
