The fascinating, but often dark and turbulent, history of the development of the rule of law is vividly portrayed in paintings by award-winning Ohio artist Ron Anderson that now grace the walls of the law library in the newly renovated Supreme Court of Ohio building. The Ohio State Bar Association commissioned the works of art and has placed them on permanent loan to the Supreme Court of Ohio in furtherance of the Association’s mission to help Ohioans of all ages develop an appreciation of the rule of law.

The six original 4 feet by 8 feet oil paintings, which are in the gallery in the 11th floor of the library, depict in chronological order significant events in the history of the rule of law in Babylon, Egypt, Greece, Rome, England, France and the United States. Some of the works feature scenes from two different cultures side by side.

Anderson, who currently has two paintings on display at the Ohio Statehouse, cites the Ashcan School as a primary influence in his work. The Ashcan School is composed of a group of urban realist painters in America who created work around the early part of 20th century and often depicted scenes of New York City. Artist Edward Hopper is a well-known member of the group. Anderson, who also is an instructor at the Columbus College of Art and Design, has exhibited his work throughout Ohio and in New York.

The Ohio General Assembly has just passed a tort reform package that is sure to make a huge difference in the state's legal system. The bill that has been passed is Senate Bill 80 and it is sure to make many improvements to the area of personal injury law in Ohio, which is good news to Ohio personal injury lawyers.

In the past, personal injury cases in Ohio had no limit as to the amount of damages that was rewarded to a plaintiff. This often led to people suing for amounts that were much more than the actual injuries they had incurred. Senate Bill 80 has placed a limit on the amount of injuries that can now be claimed.

This limit is in the amount of $500,000 and applies to the area of pain and suffering in personal injury cases that are non-catastrophic. This new bill will also provide judges with more authority in deciding on non-economic damages that are rewarded in catastrophic cases. For Ohio personal injury lawyers, this can be an advantage when they are dealing with clients who have unrealistic expectations on the dollar value for their cases.

Senate Bill 80 also provides limits that are placed on punitive damages. It establishes a statute of repose of ten years for certain product liability claims, and it modifies Ohio's collateral source rule. The bill is not intended to limit an injured party's ability to collect damages that are rightly due. It is only to limit certain damages awarded to reasonable amounts. Plaintiffs are still entitled to receive damages incurred for lost wages, medical expenses, and damages pertaining to loss of enjoyment of life.

The American Insurance Association applauds the measures taken and the efforts of the Ohio Alliance for Civil Justice, who have been integral in these changes. The bill is expected to be signed by republican Governor Bob Taft. Senate Bill 80 will benefit all of Ohio residents and Ohio personal injury lawyers as it will bring fairness and predictability to Ohio's legal structure.
