Abstract: In the course of the year, the court adopted major changes in the rules for electing judges, including campaign conduct, campaign contributions, and enforcement guidelines. There was a continuation of the court's effort to develop a comprehensive response to domestic violence and other family-related issues, including the Domestic Violence Task Force and the Family Court Feasibility Study. There was also a continuation of a multidisciplinary effort in countering illicit drug trafficking; this included support for the creation of drug courts and the development of local court-community action plans. The court considered 30 proposals to amend or adopt court rules and the rules of practice and procedure for Ohio courts, including rules on trial publicity, lawyer referral services, limited liability legal corporations, and improvements in the lawyer and judge disciplinary system. There was also continued progress in the court's effort to secure State and Federal grant funds to maximize the use of general revenue funds, including receipt of more than $2 million in Federal and State grants over the past 2 years. Statistical data address the number of cases filed under various categories, final dispositions, discretionary appeals and claimed appeals of right allowed, cases pending, and cases filed and final dispositions in cases related to the practice of law.
