Position Papers
This position paper is a guest column that Judge Tim Black authored for the Cincinnati Enquirer on the important issue of Domestic Violence.
My legal decisions have been published by the Ohio Supreme Court
More of my legal decisions have been published by the Ohio Supreme Court than any other current Municipal Court judge. I am especially proud to have written the four lead opinions in criminal law on domestic violence.

The attached decision establishes under the law how to prosecute a domestic violence case without the victim being present. Lawyers and judges across the State of Ohio rely on my attached decision, State v. Lee (1995), 73 Ohio Misc. 2d 9; 657 N.E.2d 604.
