Ohio Supreme Court To Discontinue Bound Volumes of Appellate Court Decisions

On April 23, 2012 the Ohio Supreme Court announced that bound volumes of Ohio appeals court and trial court decisions will be discontinued as of July 1, 2012. From the Court’s announcement:

Proposed amendments to the Supreme Court Rules for the Reporting of Opinions that incorporate this new practice were announced [on April 23, 2012]. The Ohio Supreme Court will accept public comments on the proposed amendments until May 22.

Ohio Supreme Court opinions are not affected by this decision and will continue to appear in the Ohio State 3d bound volumes as well as on the Ohio Supreme Court’s website.

The change will affect the frequency of publication for the Ohio Official Reports Advance Sheets to every other week instead of the current weekly publication. A table that includes a brief description of every appellate decision for the Advance Sheets will continue to be published by the Reporter’s Office.

Comments should be submitted in writing to: Sandra Grosko, Reporter of Decisions, 65 S. Front St., Eighth Floor, Columbus, Ohio 43215 or sandra.grosko@sc.ohio.gov

According to the proposed amendments to the Supreme Court Rules for the Reporting of Opinions, all opinions of the courts of appeals and the Court of Claims shall, upon transmission to the Supreme Court, be promptly posted to the Supreme Court website.
