State v. Sheppard, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Case No. 64571
motion, judgment on the pleadings, wrongful imprisonment, standing, statute of limitations, state's filing
The State of Ohio asserts that the claims brought forth by the Estate of Sam Sheppard fail as matter of law. The motion makes three legal arguments: (1) the court lacks jurisdiction over the Estate of Sam Sheppard's claims because the claim was unreasonably delayed, (2) the statute of limitations bars any claim that Sam Sheppard might have, and (3) the Estate of Sam Sheppard does not have standing to bring a wrongful imprisonment claim because the injured party is deceased.
