OHIO HIGH COURT TO GET BAIL BOND CASE RE: OBAA MEMBER WOODY FOX
WISH WOODY GOOD LUCK WITH THIS FIGHT. IF HE WINS IT WILL BE A BIG WIN FOR ALL OHIO BAIL AGENTS
The Ohio Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a case filed by a local bail bonds company regarding bond procedures in Licking County Common Pleas Court.
An order filed Wednesday by Chief Justice Maureen OConnor ordered oral arguments be scheduled sua sponte, or by judges order without a motion being filed by any parties involved.
The complaint was filed in March by Woody Fox, of Woody Fox Bail Bonds LLC, against Common Pleas Court Clerk Gary Walters and judges David Branstool and Thomas Marcelain.
Fox said in the complaint that the clerks office, which Walters is head of, refuses to accept surety bonds when an appearance bond, or 10 percent bond, is set by a judge.
Licking County Prosecutor Ken Oswalt is representing all three defendants. Each defendant had filed a motion to be dismissed as a defendant. All three motions were denied.
Fox filed a similar complaint against Municipal Court Clerk of Courts Marcia Phelps in June 2011. That case was settled after an agreement was reached to accept sureties if a 10 percent bond was ordered.
No date has
been scheduled for oral arguments in the case. An employee for the Ohio
Supreme Court said the date would be announced no later than six weeks
before the hearing date.
