How Should Domestic-Violence Survivor Challenge Removal of Ex's Firearms Restriction?
State of Ohio ex rel. Jamie Suwalski v. Judge Robert W. Peeler, Case No. 2020-0755
Twelfth District Court of Appeals (Warren County)
Does Article I, Section 10a(B) of the Ohio Constitution require a victim to seek specific relief in a trial court and assert a viable claim before petitioning an appellate court for an extraordinary writ?
Does res judicata prevent a victim from obtaining a writ of prohibition when the victim appears at a trial court hearing but doesn't formally intervene in the matter and the court's judgment becomes final?
Is filing a writ of prohibition allowed when a victim has an adequate legal remedy through intervening in a trial proceeding?
