Ohio Justice Judi French Visits Findlay Rotary


7/22/14 4:00 p.m.
Ohio Supreme Court Justice Judi French said her career began when she was a sixth grader at BL Miller Elementary School in Sebring in 1973. French said her teacher gave a civics quiz about world affairs every morning, requiring her students to pay attention to the world around them.
French gave a behind the scenes look at the Supreme Court to the Rotary club at their meeting Tuesday afternoon and said the Supreme Court is much different than your everyday trials court.

The general rule of thumb of the court French said is to determine whether or not the case is in the great general interest of the public, such as constitutional questions.
She said the rulings of the Ohio Supreme Court affect the public more than they probably realize.

French said over 1.5 million lawsuits a year are filed in Ohio, 10,000 of those will go to Appeals court and 100 to 120 will make it to the Supreme Court out of about 1,600 requests.
