  • State awards $110,000 to Vermont man beaten by officers
  • LeBron James tours rehab home
  • FirstEnergy uses helicopter to set power lines over I-480
  • High court bars convicted judge from returning to the bench
    The Ohio Supreme Court has voted to suspend a Cuyahoga County judge found guilty of lying to FBI agents during 2010's widespread county corruption investigations. 

    The high court indefinitely suspended former Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas judge Bridget McCafferty who in 2011 was sentenced to 14 months in prison. 

    The court says McCafferty lied to FBI agents when she denied using her influence to help former commissioner Jimmy Dimora and former auditor Frank Russo. 

    The Ohio Bar Association has also suspended McCafferty’s law license.


    State awards $110,000 to Vermont man beaten by officers
    A Vermont man has reached a deal with The Ohio State Highway Patrol in a case where he accused officers of using "excessive and unjustified” force following a car accident.

    Eugene Wrinn says he was delirious following an accident in 2005 and failed to respond to officers’ commands to remain in his car.

    A complaint by Wrinn says he was severely beaten by two highway patrol officers and hospitalized.

    The settlement approved by the Ohio Court of Claims awarded Wrinn $110,000 in damages. 


    LeBron James tours rehab home
    NBA star LeBron James on Sunday joined an Akron family on a tour of their home, which he and his foundation helped to fix.

    The LeBron James Family Foundation partnered with reality TV show host Nicole Curtis on the eight-day renovation project.

    Work on the house will be featured later this year the show "Rehab Addict". 


    FirstEnergy uses helicopter to set power lines over I-480
    Drivers along a section of I-480 will see brief delays today as a utility extends high-tension transmission wires across the interstate.

    FirstEnergy is using a helicopter to stretch the power lines across I-480 in northern Summit County.
