Sixth District Decision on Cognizable Event
Post on March 8th, 2016

The Sixth District Court of Appeals in Lucas County recently affirmed the decision of the trial court finding that the statute of limitations barred appellant’s action for professional malpractice.  Citing Zimmie v. Calfee, Halter and Griswold, the court held that the cognizable event occurred when the appellant filed his motion to vacate his sentence based on ineffective assistance of counsel and the appellant was put on notice of a possible legal malpractice claim as of that date. Click here to read Smith v Candiello 2016-Ohio-844
