Legal System Summary
Ohio’s lawsuit system performs just in the bottom half of state legal systems. Business litigators surveyed in 2015 ranked Ohio 27th in the nation at producing fair and reasonable justice. Ohio’s legislature has been diligent about improving their relevant laws but overactive plaintiffs’ attorneys have historically found ways to expand liability.
