Wayne County Appellate Decisions for January, 2014

PNC Bank, Natl. Assn. v. West, 2014-Ohio-161 overruled the granting of a motion for summary judgment to the plaintiff by the Wayne County Common Pleas Court. The appellate court found that the "evidence" offered in support of the motion for summary judgment and was intended to establish that the bank had standing to bring the action wasn't admissible under Ohio's Rules of Evidence. Therefore the summary judgment was reversed and the cause remanded back to the trial court. 

State v. Raber, 2014-Ohio-249 affirmed an order of the Wayne County Common Pleas Court denying Mr. Raber's motion to expunge his record or seal his conviction. The basis for the trial court's ruling was that a conviction for the offense of sexual imposition, a third degree misdemeanor, is not one that can be expunged or sealed. The appellate court agreed and affirmed the trial court's ruling.
