The Supreme Court of Ohio announced yesterday the adoption of an amendment to the Rules of Practice that addresses when the clock starts ticking to file an appeal in the Supreme Court after a party seeks reconsideration of a decision of an appeals court, or when a party seeks a full review by all members of an appeals court, also known as an en banc review.
Division (A)(6) of S.Ct. Prac. R. 2.2 was adopted in response to an amendment to the Rules of Appellate Procedure that permits a party to file a motion for en banc review with a court of appeals, which, in turn, was a product of the Supreme Court's decision in McFadden v. Cleveland State Univ..
The amendment will become effective July 1, 2010
