COMMON PLEAS LOCAL RULES 9 AND 78
On February 19, 2019, the Judges of the Franklin County Common Pleas Court, General Division, adopted amendments to Local Rule 9 (“Costs”) and Local Rule 78 (“Appointed Counsel Review Board”).
Pursuant to Ohio Civil Rule 83(B) and Ohio Superintendence Rule 5(A)(2), both Local Rules were adopted prior to public notice and comment, as the court determined there was an immediate need for the Rules amendments.

Local Rule 9 removed out of date licenses and fees and added a $220.00 fee for online sheriff sales of property.
Local Rule 78 states the Board shall consist of the Presiding Judge, Administrative Judge, and Rules Committee Chair.
