Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Makes Its Commercial Docket Permanent
According to a Court Press Release, the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court made its Commercial Docket permanent, effective July 1st. The Common Pleas Court had been participating in a pilot project since 2008 that was started by the late Justice Thomas Moyer. Judges Richard J. McMonagle and John P. O'Donnell (who serves on our Law Library's2 Boards) were the only judges working the docket, but the new program will expand to include 2 additional judges. Although the docket is governed by Ohio Superintendence Rules (49.01-49.12), the Common Pleas Court will also be formulating a Local Rule soon to help lawyers understand the process in Cuyahoga County.
