According to the latest statistics from the Ohio Supreme Court, Ohio court case filings are the lowest they have been in 10 years, down 21% since 2002. The decline is primarily attributed to fewer cases being filed in municipal and county courts. According to the Court's press release:
"One other significant trend contained in the report concerns general divisions of common pleas courts. Each one of the case categories (administrative appeals, criminal, foreclosures, other civil, other torts, product liability, professional tort and workers’ compensation) declined compared to 2010 with five of those experiencing 10-year lows."
