State v. Kuntz 21CA3759FINAL APPEALABLE ORDER - A criminal charge for which there is no recorded disposition is a "hanging charge" that prevents the conviction from being a final order; if a court's order is not final and appealable, we have no jurisdiction to review the matter and must dismiss the appeal; jurisdictional issues must be raised by the court sua sponte even if not raised by the parties.SmithRoss 2/28/2023 3/6/2023 2023-Ohio-669

Struckman 21CA7Discovery-trial court did not abuse its discretion by staying discovery when discovery would not have been fruitful given that dispositive summary judgment motion based upon res judicata remained pending; Civ.R. 15(A)-trial court did not err by determining that opposing counsel did not give written consent to amended pleading when counsel agreed to a proposed case scheduling order before scheduling conference with the court; trial court did not abuse its discretion by striking amended pleading or by denying leave to file amended pleading when amendment would be futile due to res-judicata bar; Civ.R. 56(C)-trial court did not incorrectly grant summary judgment when res-judicata and the law-of-the-case doctrine dictated the outcome of the proceedings.AbelePickaway 1/25/2023 1/27/2023 2023-Ohio-244
State v. Moore 21CA3756CRIMINAL-MOTION TO SUPPRESS-EVIDENTIARY RULING - Where Appellant argues that the trial court abused its discretion by refusing to allow her to question trooper about potential bias and violated her right to a fair hearing but does not make a Confrontation Clause argument, this court will not raise or consider the issue on her behalf; Ohio Rules of Evidence are not applicable to suppression hearings and where Appellant's question whether or not trooper was subject to discipline for failure to make traffic stops would relate to whether or not Appellant's stop was based on pretext, and would be only marginally relevant to assessing trooper's credibility, trial court did not abuse its discretion by sustaining State's objection to the question.SmithRoss 1/23/2023 2/21/2023 2023-Ohio-494

State v. Allen 21CA3969CRIMINAL - The trial court's decision denying defendant's presentence motion to withdraw his guilty pleas was not unreasonable, arbitrary, or unconscionable and therefore the trial court did not abuse its discretion in denying the motion; the trial court reasonably applied controlling case law to find a violation of R.C. 4511.33(A)(1) occurred where the defendant's vehicle crossed over the fog line by a half a tire width and therefore the trial court's denial of the motion to suppress was not against the manifest weight of the evidence.SmithScioto 1/12/2023 1/24/2023 2023-Ohio-192
In re F.T. 22CA17PERMANENT CUSTODY - Although a judgment rendered without proper service or entry of appearance is a nullity and void, a notice issue may be waived on appeal when a parent's attorney is present for various permanent custody hearings and does not raise the improper notice issue; Even assuming counsel's deficient performance by failing to object to the alleged lack of service, father cannot demonstrate that such supposed deficiency prejudiced him and thus, he cannot demonstrate that the result of the proceeding would have been different but for counsel's errors; a reviewing court will generally not disturb a trial court's permanent custody decision unless the decision is against the manifest weight of the evidence; because the agency presented substantial clear and convincing evidence that placing the child in its permanent custody would serve the child's best interest, the trial court's decision is not against the manifest weight of the evidence; because the agency presented substantial clear and convincing evidence that placing the child in its permanent custody would serve the child's best interest, the trial court's decision is not against the manifest weight of the evidence; R.C. 2151.419(A)(1) did not require the agency to show reasonable efforts at the permanent custody hearing unless it had not been established previously and the agency had made multiple reasonable efforts findings at the time of the hearing.SmithRoss 1/12/2023 1/24/2023 2023-Ohio-191
