Morgan v. Morgan CA2017-09-131Trial court did not abuse its discretion in designating appellee legal custodian and residential parent of four minor children.M. PowellButler 10/15/2018 10/15/2018 2018-Ohio-4178
Smith v. Smith CA2018-02-004Trial court did not err in awarding father a credit toward his child support obligation where the parties failed to file a transcript of the hearing in support of their objections to the magistrate's decision. Mother's motion for reconsideration of the trial court's decision was a nullity.M. PowellMadison 10/15/2018 10/15/2018 2018-Ohio-4179
State v. Gearhart CA2017-12-168The trial court did not abuse its discretion by permitting a doctor to testify regarding the possible cause of one of the two victim's injuries rather than a probable cause of the victim's injuries since expert witnesses in criminal cases can testify in terms of possibility rather than in terms of a reasonable scientific certainty or probability. Appellant also did not receive ineffective assistance of counsel where counsel's decision whether to object to certain testimony was trial strategy that did not impact appellant's conviction given the overwhelming evidence of his guilt.S. PowellWarren 10/15/2018 10/15/2018 2018-Ohio-4180
McVean v. McVean CA2018-03-054The trial court's decision to grant an estranged wife a domestic violence civil protection order was not against the manifest weight of the evidence where there was competent and credible evidence that husband's aggressive conduct in pushing his wife, towering over her, and pointing and screaming in her face caused wife to be in fear of imminent physical harm.HendricksonButler 10/8/2018 10/8/2018 2018-Ohio-4062
In re S.C.R. CA2017-11-018The juvenile court did not err by dismissing appellant's motion for custody pursuant to the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act as codified under R.C. Chapter 3127 upon finding it lacked subject matter jurisdiction to rule the complaint where the child's "home state" was Nevada, not Ohio, as that term is defined by R.C. 3127.01(B)(7).S. PowellClinton 10/8/2018 10/8/2018 2018-Ohio-4063
Tilbrook v. Francis CA2017-06-091The trial court did not err in denying appellant's objections to the court's issuance of a domestic violence civil protection order where appellant failed to provide the trial court with a transcript of the evidence submitted at a full hearing or an affidavit of that evidence, as required by Civ.R. 65.1(F)(3)(d)(iv).HendricksonWarren 10/8/2018 10/8/2018 2018-Ohio-4064
State v. Kuhn CA2018-01-003The trial court did not err by revoking appellant's intervention in lieu of conviction after she was found guilty violating the terms and conditions of her intervention in lieu of conviction treatment plan by failing to report to her probation officer as instructed where the then applicable intervention in lieu of conviction statute, R.C. 2951.041, required the trial court revoke appellant's intervention in lieu of conviction upon finding appellant violated the terms of her intervention in lieu of conviction treatment plan.S. PowellWarren 10/8/2018 10/8/2018 2018-Ohio-4065

Ohio Bar Liab. Ins. Co. v. CCF Dev., L.L.C. CA2017-12-170, CA2017-12-175Trial court did not err by finding that parties had released mortgage encumbering real property even though there were irregularities in the description of the property, as all necessary information was provided and correctly referenced the recording records.RinglandButler 10/1/2018 10/1/2018 2018-Ohio-3988
State v. Williams CA2018-01-012, CA2018-01-013Appellant's assignment of error challenging the trial court's calculation of jail-time credit was dismissed where appellant had already completed his prison sentence, thereby rendering his arguments moot. Further, the trial court did not err in imposing court costs in the judgment entry of sentence without first addressing the costs at the sentencing hearing because appellant can move for waiver of court costs at any time per the recent amendment to R.C. 2947.23(C).HendricksonButler 10/1/2018 10/1/2018 2018-Ohio-3989
