Appeals to the Ohio Supreme Court

Published Date Written by Erik L. Smith

Unfortunately many adoption related cases end up being decided by the Ohio Supreme Court, through my work as a paralegal I have been involved in cases presented to the Ohio Supreme Court, as well as in presenting Writs to that court.  Writs perhaps can be explained as emergency requests, when the normal channels of appelas won't work.  The Ohio Supreme Court for the most part decides which cases it will hear.  Many factors come into play during this decision process, a client wanting to present a case to the Ohio Supreme Court, must file a brief with the court explaining why the court should hear the case.
