CWRU law school dean takes leave amid allegations
Other headlines: Ohio high court ousts Stark County sheriff; Bobby Thompson trial delayed

  • Ohio high court ousts Stark County sheriff
  • CWRU law school dean takes leave amid allegations
  • Bobby Thompson trial delayed
  • Ohio high court ousts Stark County sheriff
    The Ohio Supreme Court has ordered a northeast Ohio sheriff removed from office because he doesn't have the required experience.

    The court ruled against Stark County Sheriff George Maier. The county’s Democratic executive committee had appointed him early this year to fill a vacancy.

    The court ruled Maier’s service with the Ohio Department of Public Safety only reflected part-time law-enforcement work.

    Ohio law requires a sheriff to have four recent years of full-time law-enforcement work.

    The court ordered the reinstatement of former sheriff Tim Swanson who led the legal challenge to Maier’s appointment.  

     
    CWRU law school dean takes leave amid allegations 
    The Dean of Case Western Reserve University’s law school has taken a leave of absence after sexual misconduct charges against him were filed by another professor.

    Dean Lawrence Mitchell is accused of retaliating against professor Raymond Ku after Ku reported to school administrators that Mitchell had potentially sexually harassed female staff members.

    Mitchell announced this morning that he’s taking a temporary leave to avoid distractions caused by the litigation.


    Bobby Thompson trial delayed
    Expected testimony by a onetime fugitive charged in a suspected $100 million charity fraud has been delayed in Cleveland.

    Testimony by the defendant identifying himself as Bobby Thompson was expected as early as Wednesday, but court was called off until next Tuesday because the defense attorney's wife went into labor.

    The defendant ran the United States Navy Veterans Association of Tampa, Fla.

    Authorities identify him as 67-year-old John Donald Cody. He's been described as a Harvard-trained attorney and former military intelligence officer.

    The prosecution began calling witnesses Oct. 7 and wrapped up its case Tuesday.

    The defendant was indicted in 2010 and disappeared for almost two years. He was arrested last year in Portland, Ore., where authorities found fake IDs and a suitcase containing $980,000 in cash.
