State v. Shine-Johnson 17AP-194Defendant's conviction for murder and tampering with evidence was not against the manifest weight of the evidence where defendant admitted to firing a shotgun at his father while defendant was standing in the yard of the home where both he and his father lived, and several witnesses contradicted defendant's testimony that he feared for his life and shot his father in self-defense. Defendant did not demonstrate that he was denied a right to a fair trial or suffered prejudice due to prosecutorial error, the trial court's refusal to provide certain curative instructions and jury instructions, ineffective assistance of counsel, or the cumulative effect of errors. Judgment affirmed.SadlerFranklin 8/21/2018 8/21/2018 2018-Ohio-3347
Brown v. Holiday Inn Express & Suites 17AP-477The trial court did not err in dismissing plaintiff's claims for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress because plaintiff did not file those claims within the one-year statute of limitations applicable to battery claims.

Filonenko v. Smock Constr., L.L.C. 17AP-854The trial court erred in concluding that the resolution of the underlying case mooted motions for sanctions brought pursuant to R.C. 2323.51 and Civ.R. 11.KlattFranklin 8/16/2018 8/16/2018 2018-Ohio-3283
Ghani v. Greenfield 17AP-478In a case where divorcing parents proved unable to cooperate with one another and one was less reasonable and less likely to respect the rights of the other, the court acted within the proper exercise of its discretion to name the more reasonable of the two the legal custodian and residential parent. The trial court did retain jurisdiction, even after the filing of the appeal, to enforce its decree and did not err in determining that one parent had not acted in obedience to the decree.BrunnerFranklin 8/14/2018 8/14/2018 2018-Ohio-3259

State v. Campbell 17AP-713Trial court did not err when it denied appellant's motion to suppress evidence of cocaine and heroin found by police in a warrantless search of appellant's person because police had a reasonable suspicion, based on specific, articulable facts, that appellant was engaged in illegal narcotics activity and may be armed and because the subsequent search of appellant's person, including a pat-down of his groin and buttocks area did not exceed the permissible scope of Terry search for weapons. Judgment affirmed.SadlerFranklin 8/9/2018 8/9/2018 2018-Ohio-3181
