Attorney registration reminder
The Supreme Court of Ohio issued a reminder this month that attorneys will receive their 2017-2017 biennial registration packets.  Lawyers on active or corporate status must register and pay a $350 registration fee every odd-numbered year.  The registration packet contains instructions on how to register.

House overrides budget vetoes
For the first time in 40 years, the Ohio House overrode a budget veto. And they did it 11 times, leaving only 36 of Governor Kasich’s 47 vetoes, which were the most he’d ever issued on a spending plan.  The Senate has not announced when, or if, it will follow the House lead and override the Governor’s vetoes.  The legislature is now in recess and is not expected to reconvene until September.

WC one-year SOL effective date
The amendment to RC 4123.84 reducing the statute of limitations (SOL) from two years to one is found in HB 27, which was signed by Governor Kasich on June 30.   The SOL change will take effect 91 days later.  We estimate the effective date to be October 1 and will publish the official date when it is available.  Note: the new one-year SOL will apply to claims “arising on or after” the effective date.

Case Framing with Mark Mandell Seminar
At this seminar, you will learn the newest innovation in preparing and trying your cases. Developed by AAJ Past President Mark Mandell, the Case Framing paradigm relies on the latest research in decision science and psychology to help you find the overall case frame, identify the "I Just Can't Get Over" issues, and echo those issues throughout trial. The underlying premise is that just verdicts result when everything presented at trial is framed and sequenced to focus juror attention on the points you most want to make. Your case is about what you focus it on—focus the jury's attention on what actually matters. Click here to register.
