2020-0658 State of Ohio v. Marshall Williams OPEN 8/5/2020 Proposition of Law: A trial court has a duty to inquire into the possible conflict of interest created by an attorney’s dual or multiple representation of codefendants in a criminal case.
2020-0643 Rancho Cincinnati Rivers, LLC v. Warren County Board of Revision, et al. OPEN 8/4/2020 Proposition of Law 1 In decisions made shortly before and after revisions to Ohio Revised Code 5713.03 this Court held that adjustments to leased comparables must be made. The Court of Appeals decision, which ratified a Court of Common Pleas decision adopting a value with no such adjustments, must be overturned.
2020-0643 Rancho Cincinnati Rivers, LLC v. Warren County Board of Revision, et al. OPEN 8/4/2020 Proposition of Law 2 Ohio Revised Code 5713.03 is unambiguous. Property must be assessed assuming a market value transfer in the fee simple interest, as if the property is free from lease encumbrances. The Twelfth District Court of Appeals cannot interpret the law in a manner that is inconsistent with the plain language of a statute passed by the General Assembly.
2020-0643 Rancho Cincinnati Rivers, LLC v. Warren County Board of Revision, et al. OPEN 8/4/2020 Proposition of Law 3 Ohio Revised Code 1.49 states that courts interpreting statutes may only look to other factors when a statute is ambiguous. It is therefore legally impossible to interpret “as if unencumbered” as “leased at a market rate.”
2020-0643 Rancho Cincinnati Rivers, LLC v. Warren County Board of Revision, et al. OPEN 8/4/2020 Proposition of Law 4 This Court’s decision in Harrah’s Ohio Acquisition Co., L.L.C. v. Cuyahoga Cty. Bd. of Revision, 154 Ohio St.3d 340, 2018-Ohio-4370 does not invalidate the plain language of R.C. 5713.03.
2020-0625 State of Ohio v. Miquan D. Hubbard OPEN 7/1/2020 Does retroactive application of the violent offender database enrollment statutes codified in sections 2903.41 through 2903.44 of the Revised Code, commonly known as "Sierah's Law," violate the Retroactivity Clause of the Ohio Constitution, as set forth in Article II, Section 28 of the Ohio Constitution?
2020-0612 Erin G. Gabbard, et al. v. Madison Local School District Board of Education, et al. OPEN 8/4/2020 Proposition of Law: Ohio law does not require school administrators, teachers, and support staff to attend the police academy or have twenty years’ experience as a police officer in order to be authorized by a board of education to carry a firearm in a school safety zone.
2020-0599 State of Ohio v. Manson M. Bryant OPEN 8/5/2020 The trial court erred when it imposed an additional six years on Bryant's sentence after his outburst in court.
2020-0549 State of Ohio v. Albert Jarvis OPEN 7/1/2020 Whether Ohio's sub S.B. 231, "Sierah's Law," [R.C. 2903.42, et. seq.], creating a violent offender database, which became effective March 20, 2019, violates Section 28, Article II of the Ohio Constitution, Ohio's constitutional prohibition on retroactive statutes when retroactively applied to an offense that occurred before March 20, 2019.
2020-0544 State of Ohio v. Miquan Hubbard OPEN 7/1/2020 The retroactive application of Senate Bill 231—Sierah’s Law—is unconstitutional as applied to offenses committed prior to the effective date of the statute. Section 28, Article II of the Ohio Constitution A. Sierah’s Law affects a substantial right because it imposes new duties and obligations that did not exist before its enactment. B. Ohio appellate courts have issued conflicting opinions regarding the constitutionality of the retroactive application of Sierah’s Law.
