Rebecca Buddenberg v. Robert K. Weisdack et al., Case No. 2018-1209
U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio
- Does the Ohio law allowing the filing of a civil lawsuit to recover damages for injuries based on a "criminal act" require a criminal conviction?
- When a public servant files a civil lawsuit alleging a criminal violation of retaliation for discharge of duties, must the violator be convicted of a crime before the public employee can pursue civil damages?
