Stainbrook v. Ohio Secy. of State 16AP-314Court of Claims of Ohio properly dismissed defamation and false light claims. Some were past the time allowed by the statute of limitations. Other claims were dismissed as not applying to the facts involved in Stainbrook's removal as a member of the Lucas County Board of Elections.TyackFranklin 4/25/2017 4/25/2017 2017-Ohio-1526
State v. Gamble 16AP-397Judgment affirmed. The jury could reasonably conclude that appellant, with prior calculation and design, made a calculated decision to kill the victim and then followed through on his decision. Appellant's conviction for aggravated murder was not against the manifest weight of the evidence. As such, there was sufficient evidence to support the aggravated murder conviction, and the trial court properly denied appellant's motion for acquittal under Crim.R. 29.HortonFranklin 4/25/2017 4/25/2017 2017-Ohio-1527
State v. Cochran 16AP-491Court of Claims of Ohio properly dismissed defamation and false light claims. Some were past the time allowed by the statute of limitations.

Hazell v. Kroger Co. 16AP-577As appellant did not file a memorandum in opposition to appellees' motion or any objection to allegedly non-complying documents in support thereof, the court could consider the same when adjudicating appellee's summary judgment motion. [A] store is not liable for a customer's injuries unless the customer can show: (1) the store, through its officers or employees, placed the substance on the floor; (2) at least one of the store's officers or employees had actual knowledge of the presence of the substance and failed to remove it or warn the customer, or (3) the substance had been on the floor long enough that the store officers or employees should have known of its presence and removed it or warned the customer. Appellant did not establish that appellees breached the duty of care owed to her. Judgment in favor of appellee's motions for summary judgment is affirmed.DorrianFranklin 4/20/2017 4/20/2017 2017-Ohio-1459
Clellan v. Lancione 16AP-677Trial court did not abuse its discretion by granting motion to dismiss because affidavits contained sufficient evidence to overcome the presumption of service arising from compliance with the civil rules. Appellants' claims regarding alleged irregularities by the trial court were not supported by the record; absent evidence in the record, regularity in the proceedings must be presumed.DorrianFranklin 4/20/2017 4/20/2017 2017-Ohio-1460
Three-C Body Shops, Inc. v. Nationwide Mut. Fire Ins. Co. 16AP-742Affirmed. The trial court did not err when it granted appellee's motion for judgment on the pleadings. Appellant did not state a claim for breach of contract against appellee, a non-party to any contract with appellant, as a purported third-party beneficiary. The trial court properly granted judgment on the pleadings to appellee on the unjust enrichment claim because appellant did not confer a benefit upon appellee. Under controlling precedent of the Supreme Court of Ohio, the assignment of appellant's customer's claim against appellee to appellant was invalid. Finally, because appellant failed to join the customer as a necessary party, as required by R.C. 2721.12(A), the trial court was without jurisdiction to hear appellant's declaratory judgment claim.HortonFranklin 4/20/2017 4/20/2017 2017-Ohio-1461
