Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio General Assembly has enacted a law that raises the monetary limit for cases handled through Ohio’s small claims court system. The new maximum amount of $6,000 for a small claims case will replace the current limit of $3,000 when House Bill 387 becomes effective in late September. Under the new law, a defendant in the case may also file a counterclaim for up to $6,000. Governor Kasich signed the bill on June 28, 2016.Ohio law requires every county and municipal court in Ohio to establish a small claims division to handle minor disputes involving only the recovery of money. A small claims court cannot hear cases for slander, libel, malicious prosecution, abuse of process, return of personal property, punitive damages or other cases seeking remedies other than money. A person may file a small claims complaint and present the case in court without the assistance of an attorney, but may have legal representation if desired. The court may appoint a magistrate, who must be an attorney, to oversee the case and render a decision. The court also has the authority to enforce a monetary judgment against a party. Because small claims cases tend to be simple, they are resolved in less time and with less expense than cases heard by other courts.The increased monetary limit for small claims cases will allow farmers and agribusinesses to address more disputes quickly and without the expense of an attorney. Operators and landowners owed money for products or services in excess of the current $3,000 small claims maximum often express frustration that it could be too costly and time consuming to address the matter through municipal or county courts. The new higher limit of $6,000 should capture many of these cases and offer an opportunity to recover such losses through the small claims process. According to the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Lou Terhar (R-Cincinnati), the change will “bring Ohio in line with surrounding states and make Ohio a better place to do business and generate jobs.”
The National Green Tribunal on Tuesday rapped the Union Water Resources Ministry over its notification pertaining to groundwater extraction.A Bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel came down heavily on the Ministry and said that the notification, issued on December 12, was against “national interest”.No-objection certificateIn the notification, the Ministry had said that industries extracting groundwater and those that use the same for packaged drinking water, would need to apply for a no-objection certificate from the government. However, the agriculture sector will be exempt from the fees, the notification had said.The Ministry informed the Bench that a Water Conservation Fee has also been introduced in the revised guidelines.Water Conservation Fee “The WCF payable varies with the category of the area, type of industry and the quantum of groundwater extraction and is designed to progressively increase from over-exploited areas and from low to high water consuming industries as well as with increasing quantum of groundwater extraction,” read the affidavit submitted by the Ministry before the NGT.However, stating that merely imposing a cost was not enough to curb groundwater extraction, the green panel has asked other parties, including the petitioners, to put forth their suggestions and objections to the guidelines.While asking the petitioners to file their responses to the notification by January 2, the Tribunal added that a detailed order including the directions will be uploaded by the NGT by January 11.Earlier, the NGT had rapped the Central Ground Water Authority for failing to curb illegal extraction of groundwater and directed the Ministry to notify a policy by December 18.
Indian women’s ODI team captain Mithali Raj’s explosive letter to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), where she accused coach Ramesh Powar of ‘humiliating’ her and Committee of Administrators (CoA) member Diana Edulji of ‘using her position against her’, is likely to have a snowballing effect.Acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary has now written to the BCCI CEO and GM Cricket operations, seeking explanation on how the email sent by Mithali was leaked to the media.”I was taken aback by media reports today, obviously based on leaks, reporting content of the email apparently written by Ms Mithali Raj.

Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The Cardinals feel the same way about adding Palmer, who at 33 may not be what he once was, but still appears to have something left in the tank.Last season, which was his first full campaign in Oakland, Palmer completed 61.1 percent of his passes for 4,018 yards and 22 touchdowns. He was also picked off 14 times.Those numbers are decent, and they’d be a far cry from what the team has received from the position over the last three seasons. So, the organization will not only go into the new season with the usual optimism that surrounds a new coaching staff, but also that of a new quarterback who has been to a pair of Pro Bowls in his career. Palmer said he is excited to work with coaches like Bruce Arians and Tom Moore, who are each known for their innovative offensive minds, as well as throw passes to a receiver of Larry Fitzgerald’s caliber.“The trickle down effect you get from a guy like Larry makes average receivers really good and really good receivers great,” Palmer said. “I’m going to learn a lot from Larry. “I’ve already started watching film on him; I’m starting to watch every single ball thrown his way and trying to see what he does really well, and maybe some things he can improve on and areas I can help him improve, because I know he’s the type of guy that’s always looking to improve.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact LISTEN: Carson Palmer, AZ Cardinals QB That right there is what this move is all about, for both Palmer and the Cardinals. Because while Palmer was productive in Oakland, he did not do a lot of winning. And the Cardinals, well, they’ve struggled in large part because of inadequate play from the quarterback position.If all goes according to plan, both sides should get what they’re looking for out of this arrangement.And if the union is not successful, it will not be due to a lack of effort or preparation from the quarterback.“I know that we’re not blessed to play this game for very long and you have to take advantage of every opportunity,” he said. “You have to be a gym rat, you have to be studying film, you have to be improving.“Because if you’re not, there’s too many guys out there who want to play in this league and want to play for this organization and this team that want your job.” – / 11 Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The Arizona Cardinals have a starting quarterback. And, unlike the last few seasons, he has a track record of success.Carson Palmer, whom the team acquired from the Oakland Raiders via a trade Tuesday, told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf the opportunity to come to Arizona was a “no-brainer.”“You start thinking of the coaching staff they’ve put together and the players they’ve drafted and the players they’ve signed in free agency,” he said, adding that the locale being close to his west coast roots also played a role. “It made too much sense from every angle, really.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires
