In re D.S. 20CA905INEFFECTIVE ASSISTANCE OF COUNSEL-FAILURE TO REQUEST CONTINUANCE - Conclusory allegations of prejudice are not sufficient to demonstrate ineffective assistance and counsel's failure to request a continuance did not result in ineffective assistance of counsel where the trial court's decision was amply supported and there was no showing that the trial court would have reached a different conclusion if trial counsel had requested a continuance..SmithPike 9/24/2020 10/6/2020 2020-Ohio-4794
State v. Bartholomew 19CA29CRIMINAL-SEARCH INCIDENT TO ARREST - Probable cause for the defendant's arrest existed and thus the search incident to arrest was valid despite the fact that the arresting officer relied on a section of the criminal child enticement statue that had been previously declared unconstitutional, where the statute had been amended and reenacted at the time of the defendant's arrest.SmithPickaway 9/17/2020 9/25/2020 2020-Ohio-4611

State v. Bradford 20CA1109Ineffective assistance of counsel–trial counsel did not perform ineffectively in weapons-under-disability trial by failing to file a motion to suppress evidence or by failing to object to evidence that appellant had a prior felonious assault conviction; filing motion to suppress would not have had a reasonable chance of success, and successfully objecting to evidence that appellant had a prior felonious assault conviction would not have led to a different result; appellant’s conviction was not against the manifest weight of the evidence even though the state did not present direct evidence that appellant actually possessed a weapon; instead, circumstantial evidence showed that appellant constructively possessed the weapon; the weapon was located in a bedroom officers believed belonged to appellant based upon prescription pill bottles and other items that contained appellant’s name.AbeleAdams 9/14/2020 9/23/2020 2020-Ohio-4563
State v. Stapleton 19CA7Evidence–trial court did not plainly err by allowing state to introduce digital evidence obtained from cell phones and social media accounts; trial court did not plainly err by imposing multiple punishments for pandering obscenity and pandering material involving a minor offenses; trial counsel did not render ineffective assistance of counsel.AbelePickaway 9/10/2020 9/17/2020 2020-Ohio-4479
In re K.M. 20CA4 & 20CA6Trial court’s determination it was in the children’s best interest to grant permanent custody to children services agency is not against the manifest weight of the evidence; and appellants expressly waived R.C. 2151.35(B)(1)’s mandatory deadline requiring a juvenile court to dismiss a case without prejudice if the court fails to conduct a dispositional hearing within 90 days of the filing of the complaint alleging that a child is abused, neglected or dependent.AbeleHighland 9/9/2020 9/17/2020 2020-Ohio-4476
Mick v. New Holland 19CA14CIVIL-JURISDICTION-FINAL APPEALABLE ORDER - The court of appeals is required to sua sponte raise threshold jurisdictional issue even if not raised by parties. A trial court judgment that orders reinstatement and back pay without determining the amount of back pay to be paid does not constitute a final appealable order because the determination of damages with the requisite specificity is part of determining the action.SmithPickaway 9/8/2020 9/17/2020 2020-Ohio-4475
