In re S.M. CA2018-07-076The juvenile court did not err by granting permanent custody of a child to a children services agency where appellant had abandoned her child and the child's best interests were served by granting permanent custody to the children services agency due to the uncertainty surrounding appellant's housing, employment, frequent incarceration, and untreated mental health issues.S. PowellButler 11/19/2018 11/19/2018 2018-Ohio-4654
Jones v. Gori CA2018-07-068Appellee's motion to dismiss appeal for lack of a final appealable order granted and decision in Huegemann v. VanBakel, 12th Dist. Fayette No. CA2013-08-022, is overruled. The denial of a motion to dismiss based on lack of personal jurisdiction does not satisfy the requirements for a provisional remedy necessary to constitute a final appealable order because it was directed toward resolution of the main action itself and does not involve a proceeding ancillary to the main action as required by R.C. 2505.02(A)(3).S.

State v. Burns CA2018-03-015Appellant's assignment of error challenging the trial court's calculation of jail-time credit was dismissed where appellant had already completed his prison sentence, thereby rendering his arguments moot. Further, the trial court did not err by not making the consecutive sentencing findings set forth in R.C. 2929.14(C)(4) at sentencing as the findings were not required since appellant had already completed and been discharged from a prior prison sentence before the court imposed the nine-month prison sentence for violation of a protection order.HendricksonClermont 11/19/2018 11/19/2018 2018-Ohio-4657

Sufficient credible evidence existed to support the juvenile court's decision the agency's permanent custody motion where the mother had serious mental health issues, the father had substance abuse issues, and neither parent substantially remedied the issues that led to the children's removal.M.
