State ex rel. Muscioni v. Binette E-17-018Sua sponte dismissal of application for a writ of mandamus because the issue of jail time credit must be raised in a direct appeal.SingerErie 4/24/2017 4/25/2017 2017-Ohio-1522
Howard v. Hawkins L-16-1087A trial court abuses its discretion when it allows a defendant to file an answer out of time absent a showing of excusable neglect. A contract is not lawfully binding on a party when there is fraud or forgery in procuring the party's signature. The judgment of the trial court was amply supported by competent, credible evidence where appellant failed to meet her burden of proving the existence of a lawful contract.

Martin v. Block Communications, Inc. L-16-1213Trial court did not err in: finding that appellant did not have a right to amend his complaint because he failed to file an amended complaint within the time allowed under Civ.R. 15(A); denying appellant's motion for leave to amend because the proposed amended complaint did not cure the pleading deficiencies; or considering appellees' Civ.R. 12(B)(6) motion to dismiss the original complaint because it was the only pleading before the trial court. Judgment affirmed.MayleLucas 4/21/2017 4/21/2017 2017-Ohio-1474

State v. Reynolds L-16-1021Felony murder conviction was not against the manifest weight of the evidence where trial judge, acting as finder of fact, chose to give more weight to state's expert who opined that defendant was not criminally insane at the time of the offense. Also, trial counsel's decision not to file motion to suppress police interview of defendant will not support case of ineffective assistance of trial counsel where there was no showing that such a motion, if granted, would have changed the outcome of the case.MayleLucas 4/21/2017 4/21/2017 2017-Ohio-1478

In re A.J. L-16-1258Anders appeal. The trial court did not err when it terminated appellant's parental rights because the decision was not against the manifest weight of the evidence.

Judgment affirmed.MayleLucas 4/14/2017 4/14/2017 2017-Ohio-1392
