Position Papers
Concurring Opinion in DeRolph v. State
This is my concurring opinion in the school funding case that was before the Supreme Court in 1997. In it, I briefly outline my conclusion that the current school funding system violates the Thorough and Efficient Clause of the Ohio Constitution
Dissenting Opinion in Sutowski v. Eli Lilly and Co.
This is my dissenting opinion in a case that dealt with a drug, DES, that caused significant reproductive health problems to the daughters of the women who took the drug when they were pregnant in the 1950s. The daughters of the women who used DES were trying to recover damages for their health problems, our court rejected their claim of market share liability, and I dissented.
Civility in Practice
This is one of the weekly newspaper columns that I write and make available to media outlets around the state. This particular column concerns the need for greater civility in the practice of law.
