Ohio Supreme Court Justice submits resignation
Ohio: Yesterday, the Ohio Supreme Court announced that Justice Evelyn Stratton will retire from the court at the end of this year. She intends to step down to continue her work with providing mental health services to offenders and helping veterans with access to the justice system. Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor said, "Without a doubt, Justice Stratton is a fine judge and will be missed as a member of the court. I wish her nothing but success as she pursues a new calling to improve the lives of many Ohioans who need a tireless advocate."
The retirement will give Governor John Kasich his first Supreme Court appointment.
