OAJ SIDEBAR

Ohio Legislature Concludes in Rush of Activity
The Ohio General Assembly met late into the night as they rushed to pass a number of bills before they recessed for the summer.   Below are some bills of interest to trial lawyers.  A complete report will follow in the next Sidebar.

Distracted Driver Protection Bill Passes House
Legislation that OAJ opposes barely passed the House yesterday (52-32).  The bill bans uninsured drivers from claiming non-economic damages.  Although it was watered down by amendments presented by OAJ, we still opposed the bill on the House floor.  The bill now goes to the Senate where OAJ will try to defeat it. 

OAJ extends our appreciation to Representatives Mike Ashford, Christie Kuhns, Kristin Boggs and Greta Johnson who spoke against the bill and explained how it will hurt Ohioans.   Be sure to watch the video to hear what they said.

Quicker Access to Public Records
The Senate President Keith Faber pushed through legislation that creates a new procedure within the Court of Claims to hear complaints alleging a denial of access to public records.  The traditional mandamus action to resolve a dispute remains largely unchanged.

The bill passed the legislature and awaits the Governor’s signature.

Increase in Time for Crime Victims to File Supplemental Claims
At OAJ’s urging, the Senate increased from 5 to 6 years the time frame for victims of crime to file a supplemental claim with the Attorney General’s Crime Victims program.  OAJ member Mike Falleur testified before a Senate committee urging the elimination of the SOL for supplemental claims, but the committee settled for a one-year increase.

The bill passed the Senate and now goes to the House.
