Commission on the Rules of Superintendence

Commission Roster

Rule Establishing Commission

Pursuant to Section 5(A), Article IV of the Ohio Constitution, the Supreme Court has general powers of superintendence over the courts of Ohio. In exercising this responsibility the Court has promulgated the Rules of Superintendence for the Courts of Ohio. To assist in its review of these rules, the Court established the Commission on the Rules of Superintendence effective Jan. 1, 2006.

The Commission makes recommendations to the Court for adoption of new rules and amendments. Upon adoption by the Court, the rules become effective, and do not need to be submitted to the Ohio General Assembly for review.

The Commission consists of 19 members, including representatives of the various judges associations, attorneys, magistrates, clerks of court, and court administrators. The Administrative Director or his or her designee serves as the Secretary to the Commission.
