On Friday, January 1, 2016, Sutter O’Connell had the pleasure of hosting Judge Pat Fischer of the First District Court of Appeals. Judge Fischer is a candidate for The Supreme Court of Ohio in the upcoming primary election in March 2016. With over twenty years’ experience in private practice before taking the bench in 2010, Judge Fischer has a unique and practical understanding of the civil litigation process. Technological modernization of Ohio’s courts and re-establishment of the Common Pleas Court civil docket are two of Judge Fischer’s primary goals if elected. We thank Judge Fischer for his kind extension of time spent at the firm.
