Among the appeals accepted by the Ohio Supreme Court is one involving Ohio citizens' standing to challenge the expansion of gambling in the state.

The Ohio Supreme Court announced today that it will hear appeals in five cases, including one centered on whether Ohio citizens have “standing” to challenge the expansion of gambling in the state.

The court accepted the discretionary appeal in State ex rel. Walgate v. Kasich but held the case for a decision in ProgressOhio.org, Inc. v. JobsOhio, which was accepted for review on January 23. Both cases deal with whether plaintiffs have standing to bring the actions.

The other four cases that were accepted today include:

  • Cleveland Clinic Found. v. Cleveland Bd. of Zoning Appeals, which concerns a zoning decision about the construction of a helipad on the roof of an addition to Fairview Hospital.
  • State v. Harris, which concerns the admissibility of a psychologist’s trial testimony regarding a defendant’s feigned mental illness during a competency and sanity evaluation.
  • State v. Belew, which concerns whether a trial court must consider combat-related posttraumatic stress disorder and other service-related disabilities as mitigation when imposing a sentence on a veteran.
  • In re N.P., which concerns statutory limitations on a juvenile court when it revokes a child’s supervised release. This case was held for a decision in In re H.V., which concerns the same issue and has oral argument scheduled for August 20.
