Supreme Court of Ohio - Case No. 2022-0879 McCullough v. Bennett
Ryan McCullough v. Joseph E. Bennett, Case No. 2022-0879
Second District Court of Appeals (Montgomery County)

Does R.C. 2305.19(A), the "savings" statute that allows one more year to refile a personal injury lawsuit, restrict how many times the case can be refiled?
If a court dismisses a case during a one-year timeframe allowed for notifying the defendant of the lawsuit, does the savings statute extend the time to "commence" the lawsuit?
