Ohio Supreme Court rejects plaintiffs’ bar's arguments

U.S. Chamber urges Ohio Supreme Court to review constitutionality of Ohio tort reform

April 16, 2007

NCLC urged the Ohio Supreme Court to reject the plaintiffs’ bar’s latest attempt to undo Ohio’s much needed enactment of tort reform. The plaintiffs in this case contend that the legislature invaded the province of the judiciary by modifying common law by statute. However, as NCLC explained in its brief by canvassing 18th century reception statutes, the legislature merely delegated the power to create tort law to the judiciary; it did not in any way relinquish its authority to vacate that delegation or to override judge-made common law.
