Ohio Supreme Court Action Tolling Time Requirements

April 2, 2020 - "The time requirements imposed by the rules of the Court and set to expire during the term of this order shall be tolled," according to an Administrative Action taken by the Ohio Supreme Court on March 27, 2020. In the same Administrative Action, the Court stated that "[a]ny requirement in a rule of the Court that a party appear in person or requiring in-person service may be waived by the Court, local court, hearing panel, board, or commission, as applicable. Appearance or service by use of technology may be allowed if it sufficiently guarantees the integrity of the proceedings and protects the parties’ interests and rights."

Prior to this Administrative Action, Butler County Probate Court Judge and Magistrates Heather Cady and Patricia Hider had begun issuing orders converting previously scheduled in-person hearings to telephone and/or teleconference hearings. The Probate Court has been primarily utilizing Cisco's Webex Meeting platform for teleconferences, and encourages attorneys to familiarize themselves with that platform. Since March 25, Judge Rogers and the Court's Magistrates have been conducting daily noontime teleconference meetings with area probate attorneys, as the local bar and the Court work through process issues created by the COVID -19 Emergency. "Since 1889, the Butler County Probate Court has conducted its business in the Historic Butler County Courthouse, and the Court has survived a devastating flood and a deadly fire. We will get through this as well." stated Judge Rogers, as he prepared for his next hearing.
