According to the press release, Chief Justice O’Connor said. “Specifically, the task force will be charged with identifying the method and manner by which Ohio courts are funded; determining the long-term efficacy of the current funding models; and reviewing possible alternatives that might provide sustained and consistent funding for Ohio courts.”

    Dear Steve,
    Congratulations on your appointment on this crucial issue. Every state is facing a squeeze on financial resources worse than before (even though “before” we said it was “worse”). There seems to be little public will to appropriate more funds, which means that funding for the courts is a “zero-sum” event. I know that with your creativity, you will be able to suggest new ways to achieve success in the delivery of justice. The Ohio Supreme Court was wise to appoint you and I applaud its decision. Best wishes, Alan
