I have questions about my court decision. Who can I talk to?

What are the questions you have?

The rules of the Ohio Supreme Court prohibit a Judge or Magistrate from discussing a decision with one party unless the other party is present or has been notified of a hearing and does not attend the hearing.

If you think a Magistrate’s Decision is incorrect or unfair your attorney or you may file an objection within fourteen (14) days of the time-stamped date of the Decision. If you are unhappy with a Magistrate’s Order, your attorney or you may file a Motion to Set Aside the Magistrate’s Order within ten (10) days of the time-stamped date of the Order.

If you do not agree with a judge’s final decision, your attorney can file an appeal to the Ninth District Court of Appeals. These procedures have technical, procedural, and time requirements. It is important that you consult with an attorney concerning your legal rights.
