10.26.16 - Guest Column From State Representative Lou Terhar: Combatting Ohio's Opioid Epidemic

 

Recently, the Ohio Department of Health released staggering drug overdose data for 2015. Last year alone, 3,050 people died of unintentional overdoses, the highest number on record for our state. These numbers are much more than a statistic though, as many of us know someone personally struggling with addiction. Moreover, an addict’s condition not only affects their own life, but the lives of their parents, their siblings, and even their children. It is clear that we must take action to combat Ohio’s pervasive opioid epidemic.

06.13.16 - Guest Column From State Representative Terhar: Making Small Claims Courts More Effective

 

The limit on amounts that Small Claims Courts in Ohio may consider has not increased in nearly 20 years. This makes it difficult for small businesses to recover debts.  Small claims courts provide a forum for parties seeking minor monetary recoveries in civil disputes without legal representation or expert witnesses. If the amount claimed is over the small claims limit,  potential costs to bring a suit in a higher court may outweigh the potential recovery and small-business owners with limited resources may choose to forgo seeking payment altogether.
