Davis v. State of Ohio, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Case No. CV96-312322
state's filing, jury demand
The State of Ohio’s brief in response to the Estate of Sam Sheppard’s opposition to having a jury trial. The document provides a history of wrongful imprisonment lawsuits in Ohio and argues that false imprisonment was a cause of action at common law at the time the Ohio Constitution was ratified, which affords the State a right to trial by jury.
