Rogers v. Logan Cty. Health Dist. 8-17-16Civil litigants generally do not have a right to appointed counsel; appellate courts do not have jurisdiction to hear disqualification matters for trial judges. Further, mediation is not a required step in the trial process.WillamowskiLogan 3/12/2018 3/12/2018 2018-Ohio-893
State v. Frye 1-17-30The defendant-appellant's having-weapons-while-under-disability, tampering-with-evidence, and possession-of-drugs convictions are based on sufficient evidence. The defendant-appellant's possession-of-drugs conviction is not against the manifest weight of the evidence. The trial court did not err by denying the defendant-appellant's motion to suppress evidence because the trash pulls did not violate his rights under the Ohio Constitution. The trial court did not err by denying the defendant-appellant's motion to dismiss one of the counts in the indictment because ADB Fubinaca was a schedule I controlled substance in Ohio at the time of the defendant-appellant's arrest. The trial court did not commit plain error by rejecting the defendant-appellant's request for immunity under R.C. 2945.44 for witnesses he intended to call as part of his defense. The trial court did not abuse its discretion by denying the defendant-appellant's motion for a new trial because the trial court's jury instruction was not an incorrect statement of law. The defendant-appellant was not denied a fair trial based on prosecutorial misconduct. The trial court correctly concluded that the defendant-appellant's having-weapons-under-disability and tampering-with-evidence convictions are not allied offenses of similar import.PrestonAllen 3/12/2018 3/12/2018 2018-Ohio-894
State v. Gamble 16-17-02The trial court erred in its sentence of the Defendant-Appellant on the merged counts in the indictment. Further, the trial court erred in assessing the Defendant-Appellant with a mandatory fine without a showing of his present or future ability to pay the fine. Further, the trial court did not err by overruling Defendant-Appellant's motions to suppress and dismiss. Judgment affirmed in part and reversed in part.ZimmermanWyandot 3/12/2018 3/12/2018 2018-Ohio-895
In re Z.W. 5-17-21Defendant-appellant's reckless-operation conviction is based on sufficient evidence.PrestonHancock 3/12/2018 3/12/2018 2018-Ohio-896
In re Adoption of C.N.A. 17-17-20The trial court did err in concluding that petitioner-appellant failed to prove that respondent-appellee failed without justifiable cause to provide more than de minimis contact with C.N.A. and that respondent-appellee failed to provide for the maintenance and support of C.N.A. for the one-year period preceding petitioner-appellant's petition for adoption.PrestonShelby 3/12/2018 3/12/2018 2018-Ohio-897

State v. Brown 5-17-19Under R.C. 2925.02(A)(3), the State must prove that the defendant knowingly furnished a controlled substance; the State does not need to establish that the defendant was aware of what specific type of controlled substance he or she was furnishing.WillamowskiHancock 3/12/2018 3/12/2018 2018-Ohio-899
In re S.L. 17-17-17; 17-17-18; 17-17-19Trial court's decision to terminate parental rights was supported by the record when it was shown that mother did not complete or even attempt to complete the requirements of the case plan and failed to substantially remedy the condistions causing the removal of the children from the home. The trial court's determination that the termination of parental rights was in the best interest of the children was supported by clear and convincing evidence.WillamowskiShelby 3/12/2018 3/12/2018 2018-Ohio-900
Brumfield v. Brumfield 9-17-35Trial court's modification of prior custody order to have father be residential parent for school purposes supported by the record.ShawMarion 3/12/2018 3/12/2018 2018-Ohio-901
JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. v. Spears 17-17-10The trial court's decision granting summary judgment on foreclosure complaint is affirmed and the alleged oral agreement regarding a loan modification is unenforceable under the statute of frauds.ShawShelby 3/12/2018 3/12/2018 2018-Ohio-917
