Amended Ohio Rules of Practice & Procedure

Initially published for comment last Oct. 4, proposed amendments concern changes to Ohio's rules of appellate procedure, civil procedure, criminal procedure, juvenile procedure, and rules of evidence have been revised by the Commission on the Rules of Practice and Procedure and approved for filing by the Supreme Court.

That done, the Court and commission this morning announced input received during a second round of public commentary will be accepted until Feb. 23. The Court can revise and file the amendments with the General Assembly prior to May 1. The amendments would take effect on July 1 unless prior to that date the General Assembly adopts a concurrent resolution of disapproval.

Comments to these rules should be submitted in writing to:

Jo Ellen Cline, Government Relations Counsel
Supreme Court of Ohio
65 S. Front St., Seventh Floor
Columbus, Ohio 43215 or via e-mail to j.cline@sc.ohio.gov
