Brondes Ford Maumee Ltd. v. KJAMS, L.L.C. L-16-1210Plaintiff new motor vehicle dealer filed declaratory-judgment action against defendant dealership, asking trial court to determine method for calculating "within one mile" under R.C. 4517.50(C)(1). Trial court abused its discretion in denying defendant's motion to dismiss complaint because no genuine dispute existed between the two dealers under R.C. 4517.50, and decision by this court would not eliminate uncertainty. No real, justiciable controversy existed.OsowikLucas 5/26/2017 5/26/2017 2017-Ohio-4015
State v. Driftmyer OT-16-021Appellant's conviction for domestic violence was not against the manifest weight of the evidence where the victim testified that she was brutally assaulted by appellant, the investigating officer observed bruises on the victim's body, and appellant failed to introduce any exculpatory evidence. Trial counsel was not ineffective for failing to call additional witnesses or call appellant to the stand.JensenOttawa 5/26/2017 5/26/2017 2017-Ohio-4016
Egert v. Singh Bros. L.L.C. L-16-1160Trial court properly granted summary judgment to American Family Ins. Judgment affirmed.OsowikLucas 5/26/2017 5/26/2017 2017-Ohio-4017
Hahn v. Hahn OT-16-029The trial court did not abuse its discretion in adopting terms of appellee's proposed judgment entry because the court had the authority to make the ultimate decision despite the existence of a voluntary agreement. The spousal support award was reasonable and supported by competent, credible evidence on record. Matter is remanded for modification of the judgment of divorce.

State v. Johnson L-16-1020In an Anders appeal involving the discretionary transfer of a juvenile, the trial court in making the findings required under R.C. 2152.12(B), thoroughly considered the factors under R.C. 2152.12(D) and (E) and, thus, did not abuse its discretion when it transferred the case to the general division.PietrykowskiLucas 5/26/2017 5/26/2017 2017-Ohio-4019
State v. Sellers L-16-1134Trial court does not possess the authority to suspend an offender's driver's license for failure to stop under R.C. 4549.03.JensenLucas 5/26/2017 5/26/2017 2017-Ohio-4020
State v. Whites Landing Fisheries, L.L.C. E-16-065Trial court erred in finding regulation void for vagueness because in the context of navigating waters, and as the word is used in commercial fishing regulations, "northeast" is commonly understood to mean 45 degrees. The state offered a reasonable interpretation, and appellant failed in its burden to prove the regulation unconstitutional beyond a reasonable doubt. MayleErie 5/26/2017 5/26/2017 2017-Ohio-4021
Booth v. Copeco, Inc. L-16-1227Breach of contract and unjust enrichment claims brought by commissioned salesman were properly dismissed where sales compensation plan provided a formula by which commissions were calculated, and plaintiff failed to provide evidence that employer failed to follow the plan. Allegation that employer "cooks the books," without more, is insufficient to create an issue of fact. OsowikLucas 5/19/2017 5/19/2017 2017-Ohio-2897
State v. Carter L-16-1099Appeal from a misdemeanor conviction is moot where appellant served his sentence, failed to request a stay in the trial court, and failed to demonstrate a collateral disability stemming from the conviction.PietrykowskiLucas 5/19/2017 5/19/2017 2017-Ohio-2898
Downing v. Catawba Island Twp. Bd. of Zoning Appeals OT-17-002Trial court does not err in entering an amended judgment where the original judgment, aside from containing the correct caption, contained facts and analysis not pertaining to the parties before the court.PietrykowskiOttawa 5/19/2017 5/19/2017 2017-Ohio-2899
