Holeton v. Crouse Cartage Co.

92 Ohio St.3d 115, 2001-Ohio-109, 748 N.E.2d 1111 (Ohio S. Ct. 2001)

This case involved a challenge to the constitutionality of the workers’ compensation subrogation statute. Nurenberg Paris attorneys, David M. Paris and Kathleen J. St. John, acted as counsel for amicus curiae (“friend of the court”), the Ohio Academy of Trial Lawyers (OATL), arguing that the statute was unconstitutional. The Ohio Supreme Court ruled that the statute was unconstitutional, adopting many of the arguments made in OATL’s amicus brief, and quoting portions of that brief in the text of the majority opinion.
