Ohio Senate Passes Civil Justice Bill


This week, the Ohio Senate passed House Bill 179, which touches on key principles addressing Ohio’s civil justice system. The bill intends to clarify which parties and in what time a suit must be brought for certain cases.

As a member of the Ohio Alliance for Civil Justice, the OMA provided testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee last month to express concern that some of the language contained in the bill is unclear, which could inadvertently lead to inconsistent decisions in Ohio’s courts.

The bill will now go to Governor DeWine’s desk for his signature. 6/26/2024
