OMA in the Courts: Don’t Expand Punitive Damages!


Earlier this year, the OMA joined with other business interests to file an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court of Ohio to reconsider a legal question in which punitive damages are sought in a breach of contract dispute. This summer the court agreed to consider the appeal from the 7th District Court of Appeals in Mahoning County. Last week the OMA filed an amicus brief in the merit stage of the case urging the court to correct an unwise lower court ruling that threatens to allow punitive damages in non-tort cases.  10/6/2016
